NOT VOTING–Hugo, Peace, Ramadan–3.
30 D’s (all but Joannou of Norfolk/Portsmouth, and Johnson of Abingdon) voted for the bill, along with 12 R’s.
Didn’t do too well in the Richmond area as those who voted AGAINST the bill include John Cox (Hanover); Kirk Cox & Roxann Robinson (Chesterfield) Manoli Loupassi (Richmond): Peter Farrell, John O’Bannon, & Jimmie Massie (Henrico), Lee Ware (Powhatan), and Tommy Wright (Amelia).
Chris Peace (Hanover/New Kent) did not vote.
It was interesting to me that ALL the members of House Trans Sub2 except Chairman John Cox voted FOR the blll, as I really didn’t expect Del. Garrett to do so.
Also encouraging to see Chairman May, and members Habeeb and Rust of the House Transportation Committee vote FOR the bill, as they had done on the vote to Report it, although Tata, Villanueva, Yancey, and Dudenhefer, who had voted to report it, then turned around and voted against it on the floor.
We do seem to be making some progress toward bi-partisanship on the bicycling safety bills, although the vote on this bill may be more a reflection of the fact that we had a Republican patron.
I am personally disappointed in John O’Bannon (my delegate for 10 years prior to redistricting, who was a co-patron of the bill and then voted AGAINST it) and Jimmie Massie (who is my current delegate) who did the same.
Thanks to everyone who made their contacts, and be sure to thank, or express disappointment, to the delegates you contacted.
