Bill to help with e-scooter safety could be passed next session

SACRAMENTO – A proposed bill to promote the safety of e-scooters will likely not be introduced until the next session of the California state legislature, according to the communications director of Consumer Attorneys Association of California.

Eric Bailey said while the bill could still make it in this session, it's looking more like a two-year bill.

"This one it’s looking like though is going to be what they call a two-year bill, which means it’s not going to move forward this year and will very likely be taken up next year," Bailey said. "That said, nothing is ever done until the session is over. This doesn’t negate the possibility this might move, but it’s not looking very likely."

The bill, AB 1286, was introduced by Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance).
