WASHINGTON – Ryan McConaghy, Executive Director of The Micromobility Coalition, issued the following statement in response to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s veto of a bill that would have authorized the use of e-scooters and e-bikes throughout the state of New York:
“It is disappointing that Governor Cuomo’s veto will delay New Yorkers from having access to convenient, affordable, eco-friendly transportation choices. The new year will provide a new opportunity to keep New York transportation moving forward. Hopefully, the Governor will once again include legislation to authorize e-scooters and e-bikes in his budget proposal, and all parties involved can work together to quickly pass and sign smart, broadly supported, bipartisan legislation into law.”
