BILL PACKAGE HBs 5223-5224:  Defines a “vulnerable transportation device” and establishes penalties for causing death or serious injury to a vulnerable roadway user and/or an individual operating an implement of husbandry.

Sponsors:  Reps. Rogers (D) & Schuette (R)                           

HB 5223 Passage:  79-29 with Immediate Effect
HB 5224 Passage:  78-30 with Immediate Effect

Why I voted NO: This could be viewed as an unnecessary addition to already existing laws like reckless driving, negligent homicide, or manslaughter.
