Good evening: 

 

Tomorrow at some point in the afternoon, the House of Representatives will consider and pass S. 841, The Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act. It appears as the 9th suspension item on a list of 22 in the list released earlier tonight. 

If you havae the opportunity, I encourage you to watch on C-SPAN or listen on 

Cspan.org

 

It’s truly remarkable that this legislation with all of  its twists and turns along the way will be passed tomorrow! 

 

Eric
