Fellow Federationists:

             I am pleased to write to you this evening to let you 
know that, thanks to your hard work, the Senate passed S. 841, the 
Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act, late last evening.

             As you know from previous legislative alerts, the Motor 
Vehicle Safety Act, S. 3302, was not allowed to move forward due to a 
couple of senators placing holds on the bill.  It was decided that 
the Senate would take the noncontroversial pieces of the Motor 
Vehicle Safety Act and attempt to pass them as standalone bills.  Our 
Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act was one of these pieces, and it was 
passed by unanimous consent.  S. 841 will now move to the House for 

             I am asking that you contact your member of the House of 
Representatives and urge them to pass S. 841 as received from the 
Senate on the suspension calendar.  You may be connected to your 
member of the House by calling the Capitol switchboard toll free at 
(866) 727-4894.  We are one step closer to completing our work on 
this important issue, and I urge you all to make one last push to 
finish the job.

             Thank you very much for your dedication on the 
Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act.  I will update you with new 
information on House action when it is available.
