Nevada’s lane splitting bill passed the Nevada State Assembly yesterday, April 18th 2013 at 6:29 PM. The vote was overwhelmingly positive, with 34 yea, 4 nay, 2 excused and 1 absent – check out the full vote breakdown here.
This is very exciting news – the bill goes to the Nevada State Senate next, where hopefully the support will be just as strong. High five to Assemblymen Carrillo, Daly and Healey for introducing this bill, and kudos to the entire assembly for not falling for Assemblywoman Carlton’s fear of “motorcyclist’s guts end up all over the back of my car” tactics.
Stay tuned – we’ll keep reporting on AB236 as it makes its way through the Senate, hopefully to an eventual passage.
Here’s the amended bill:
