The hearing on Senate File 201 at the Minnesota Capitol — scheduled for today — has been cancelled.
Per the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, who has been tracking the progress of this bill, proposed amendments to the bill were inconsistent with the bill’s intent, so the author has pulled the bill.
Senate File 201 allowed for use of the gross misdemeanor charge and associated penalties for careless driving resulting in death.
The House bill remains alive at this time, and it is expected a similar bill to SF 201 will be reintroduced later. Stay tuned.
