The Oregon Legislative session isn't even in high "gear" yet and already there's controversy. Cyclists and others are reacting to a Bill in the House aimed at banning children under six being carried on a bicycle or pulled in a trailer. Local Rep. Gene Whisnant says he hasn't read the Bill yet, but his first reaction is there are larger issues he'd like to tackle in Salem this session. “It's important that we pass legislation to help protect citizens in our communities;  but I wish that hadn't been that high on our list of priorities. My concern is being sure that families in Central Oregon have a job and can make their mortgage and their car payment and put food on the table." Those supporting the idea cite a study that shows bikers have a high level of serious injuries each year. The fear is young children being pulled in a trailer or being carried on a bike are even more fragile when a crash occurs. If passed, violators would face a fine of $90.
