Charlie Mitchell: The bills you never heard about

But there were 2,528 distinct pieces of legislation proposed in the House and the Senate this year, not counting assorted resolutions and commendations. There are nuggets in this treasure trove that should not pass without mention.

Equal rights for motorcycles.

Yes, motorcycles.

You know when a rider pulls up to a traffic light operated by pavement-embedded sensors, the motorcycle isn’t always heavy enough to trip the switch.


But alas, the proposal of Rep. Deborah Butler Dixon, D-Raymond, proposal to exempt motorcyclists from citations for running red lights (after stopping) “died in committee,” as about 95 percent of all bills do.
