PA Senate Committee Amends Parking Protected Bike Lane Bill with Anti-Municipal Amendment
By Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia
With enormous disappointment, we have to report that HB140, the parking separated bike lane legislation that we have been working on since 2018, was dealt a big blow in the waning days of the spring 2022 session of the Pennsylvania legislature.
As last reported, we had hoped that HB140 would come up for a vote in May. Many supporters took action through emails and phone calls to ask for a committee vote. Finally, HB140 was “sunshined” on Friday, June 24 for a vote to occur in the Senate Transportation Committee on Monday, June 27th. The vote got bumped to June 28 because Monday’s session day was abruptly canceled due to a budget dispute.
