Fellow Federationists:

I am writing to give you a brief update on Senate action related to 
the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, S. 3302, which contains provisions of 
our Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act.  Thus far, the Senate's 
attempt to pass this legislation by Unanimous Consent has been 
unsuccessful because two Senators have placed a hold on, or have an 
objection with, the bill, thereby keeping it from moving forward at 
this time.  We have learned that these objections are not related to 
our provisions.

The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation will be 
working to resolve these holds over the weekend, and I will provide 
you with an update and call for action early next week.

I want to thank all of you for making calls earlier this week to urge 
senators to support the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
