GOVERNOR PLANS TO VETO SAFE PASSING BILL TODAY
Forward this email to every cyclist you know!
Dear Fellow Texas Cyclists,
Every cyclist in Texas must call Governor Perry today and insist that he
allow SB 488 to pass!
The governor mistakenly thinks that the bill puts all of the
responsibility on the motorist. There might be time to save the bill if
you hurry and make the calls.
This is the most important call we have ever asked you to make.
Our lives depend on it.
BikeTexas was notified at 12:30 pm CST that Governor Perry plans to veto
the Safe Passing Bill. This veto can happen within the next couple of
hours TODAY. We need every cyclist in Texas to call NOW and tell the
Governor to pass SB 488. More than 1000 vulnerable road users in Texas
die every year. This bill will save lives!
You must give the bill number.
CALL both phone NUMBERS
(512) 463-2000 Governor's main switchboard until 5pm
Let's Light Up The Grassroots.
