      On Wednesday, March 6, HB5506 An Act Establishing Pedestrian (and
      Bicycle) Safety Construction Programs was raised for a Public Hearing
      in the Public Safety Committee. The facts and personal testimony
      presented left little doubt for the committee that ConnDOT's policies
      were skewed relative to the risks motorists, bicyclists and
      pedestrians face in traffic.

      Today, the bill took the second step toward radically changing
      ConnDOT's priorites for the expenditure of federal Hazard Elimination
      Program Funds. On Thursday, March 7, HB5506 was passed by the Public
      Safety Committee and sent to the Appropriations Committee.

      CBC wants to thank all of the people who took the time to call, write
      and submit or present testimony. The fight is far from over. ConnDOT
      submitted written testimony against the bill and will certainly try to
      defeat it every step of the way. The bill must also be reported out
      of the Appropriations Committee before April 4 or it will die on the
      calendar.

      Thanks again,
      David Hiller
