More Good Cycling ews out of TexasRickMTB

from today's Houston Chronicle:
Brown Act moving -- Cyclists across the state were thrilled to learn that on May 21 the Texas Senate passed the Matthew Brown Act by a vote of 30-0. The amended bill must now go to the House of Representatives, where it is expected to pass without any changes. At that point, the bill would go to Gov. Rick Perry for his signature.

Lobbying for the Matthew Brown Act by cycling organizations was intense. The act covers a wide variety of cycling issues, including providing an administration and funding for major traffic safety projects in the vicinity of schools; providing funding for urban trails to allow cyclists to ride safely to local amenities; providing a model for a bicycle helmet program that local governments could have the option of adopting; and strengthening several traffic safety issues for motorists and cyclists.

Expect to see the Matthew Brown Act become law in the near future.

geez I hope that doesn't mean the hordes of Texas riders won't be making the pilgrimage to CO anymore. We really look forward to tourist season here, it's fun to spot Texans by their beet-red faces, rapid breathing, and paunches, wobbling back and forth up the mountains. Never fails to make my day.

Almost as fun as watching them drive their big 4WDs in the snow and ending up in a ditch!
