HB 180 (3-Ft Safe Passing Bill) NOT Officially Law….Yet!!!

UPDATE— On my original post a few days ago (see below) regarding HB180 has now passed in the House Public Safety Committee…but is NOT GA Law…yet.   Here is the road it must travel before becoming law:

Current status:

  • HB 180 now goes to Rules Committee:  If passed, then HB180 goes to the full House floor for a vote.  If passes, then…
  • If HB180 passed in the full House, then it goes to the Senate for debate.  If it passes debate, then…
  • HB180 goes to the full Senate floor for a vote.  If it passes full Senate floor, then…
  • HB180 goes to the Governor for signature.  HB180 ONLY becomes law after the Governor signed the bill into GA Law, taking affect approximately June/July timeframe.

Therefore, the battle has a long way to go…so keep the pressure up on your elected officials.  Stay tuned here as we bring you a list of officials you need to contact at specific times, especially when this transfers to the Senate.  Let’s join forces and make this a reality, in honor of Tony Serrano.

See ya on the road…




Please note that the House Public Safety Committee will meet on Wednesday, March 2 at 3:00pm for a hearing on HB 180, the Three Foot Safe Passing bill.  Emails & calls to the Public Safety committee members are in order!
