What do you think about the proposed fee on new bike sales?
Please take our 1-question survey now: Survey : Questions
This Friday, State Legislature will be hearing public testimony on the House Transportation budget, HB 1954. This bill includes a proposed $25 fee on sales of all new bikes that cost more than $500. Currently the money raised would go into a dedicated account to improve street access for pedestrians and bicyclists.
The fees are estimated to total about $1.7 million per year and approximately 25% of that may be from the sale of bikes intended primarily for use on trails rather than roads.
Our Executive Director will be on hand in Olympia Friday to speak for mountain bikers, so we need your opinion NOW...
Please take our one question survey ASAP so Glenn can represent your opinions in this matter.
