> 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.
