Senate just voted 27-6 to approve SB 1464. No debate or opposition! 6 Republicans voted YES.
The bill still needs to make its way through the State Assembly, but all signs point to little opposition.
The real question remaining is whether Governor Jerry Brown will veto it again. Brown vetoed the previous version of the proposal, SB 910, last October due to opposition from the California Highway Patrol and the American Automobile Association over hypothetical traffic congestion caused by cars slowing down to pass bicycles.
