Lane Sharing (HB2314) Town Hall - Wednesday, June 26th

Though we fought our hardest, HB2314 "died in committee" this year.

Please join us on Wednesday, June 26th, to discuss the bill. We'll update folks on this year's work, and talk about next steps. If you have questions, we'll do our best to answer them.

The meeting will be in the U.S. Bank room at the Multnomah County Central Library (801 SW 10th Avenue, Portland, OR). Doors open at 5:45, meeting starts at 6:00. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Even though the bill was unsuccessful, the effort riders put into it was exceptional, and much appreciated. We've never seen such support down in Salem - many legislators told us "my constituents really support this!"; your emails and phone calls helped make that happen.

*Response from Rep Salinas. The road safety comment may indicate the message is not being properly delivered.

"Thank you for contacting me to share your support for HB 2314, concerning motorcyclists and lane splitting in heavy traffic situations.
I fully support legislation that would reduce traffic and vehicle emissions, which this legislation has the potential to do. However, it is important to balance these benefits with the implications of greater road safety in mind. This bill did not receive a work session by the required deadline and it will not be moving forward this session as a result. Please know that I will keep your thoughts in mind should legislation on this issue be debated in future sessions.
Thank you again for contacting me about this important issue. Please reach out to my office if you have any additional questions or would like to bring any other issues to my attention.
Andrea Salinas
Oregon State Representative
