Lawmaker introduces bill, then gives up

Transportation advocate Paul Steely White is disappointed glad Councilman Eric Ulrich isn't pushing harder on his bill to require bikes to have license plates.

The Councilman told us quite frankly that he doesn't expect the bill to go anywhere, which came as a surprise to us, because I guess we learned in civics class that elected officials are supposed to introduce legislation that will have an impact and also have some chance of passing, and apparently he doesn't believe that.
