Electric Bike Bill Advances
SB 236, sponsored by Sen. Heather Steans (D-Chicago) would clarify Illinois law to state that cyclists on electric bikes that are operated at no more than 20 miles per hour shall have the same rights and responsibilities as all other cyclists.
This bill was prompted by some incidents with police telling cyclists they must get drivers licenses for electric bikes. The bill passed out of the Senate Transportation Committee and now proceeds to the full Senate.
