    Thanks to everyone who sent an e-mail. The bill was killed in committee yesterday afternoon by a 13-2 vote.

    If itís anything like ending contributory negligee in DC, itís going to be a long effort.

    Any feedback or indication of why it was killed?

    [Sigh] We pick ourselves off the deck and keep working.

    DC peeps- What combo of "magic words" and focused lobbying effort got DC's Bill through?

    I would assume lobbying by insurance cos, who like the contributory negligence standard.

    In general, bike/ped friendly legislation in Richmond takes a few attempts before finally getting passed. I was suprised Senator Surovell proposed this at this point - this is a good start, IMO.
