MD Legislative Session Ends Without Mandatory Helmet Law


April 9th, 2013 | Categories: Programs | Post Comment

At midnight on April 9th, the Maryland General Assembly’s session adjourned without the passing on HB339, the mandatory bike helmet bill. The bill remained in the Environmental Matters committee without coming to a vote.  Special thanks to Delegates Maggie McIntosh and Luke Clippinger who were willing to open a dialogue with concerned cyclists and hear the bill’s counterpoints.  Thanks also to those across the state who contacted state delegates to voice an opinion on the bill.
