|Gov. Evers Signs Assembly Bill 132 Relating to the Regulation of E-Bikes|
|MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today signed Assembly Bill 132, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 34, a bipartisan bill that creates a definition for electric bicycles and provides a regulatory framework for rider safety.
“Electric bicycles are not only a fun alternative to regular bicycles, but they offer a more sustainable and accessible transportation option for Wisconsinites,” said Gov. Evers. “Whether its visitors sight-seeing in a Wisconsin community, folks choosing an environmentally friendly commute to work, or a transportation alternative for our seniors and people with disabilities, this is a great transit option for our local communities. I am happy to sign this bipartisan bill that ensures Wisconsinites can enjoy the ride safely.”
