HF2409 on e-bikes passes subcommittee

House File 2409 defining e-bikes passed a Ways & Means Subcommittee today.  Rep. David Maxwell (IA-76-R) chaired the committee and spoke of his desire to see the High Trestle Trail Bridge.  He thought e-bikes would be a great way for a person who might not get around so well to be able to see that area. 

The bill advanced unanimously and will next be heard by the Ways & Means Committee in the Iowa House before seeing floor debate.  

A companion bill is in the Senate awaiting floor debate.  If the bills pass both chambers, they will be sent to Governor Reynolds for a signature.
