First proposed in December by Councilman Bill Rosendahl, the motion seeking a cyclist anti-harassment ordinance is on deck for tomorrow morning's L.A. City Council meeting. Two routes (err, proposals on how to tackle the issue) are up for grabs, as proposed by two separate committees, explains Damien Newton at StreetsblogLA: "The basic difference between the two? The process spelled out by the Transportation Committee is a two-step process, first an ordinance is created, then voted on by the Council. The one by Public Safety adds a third step at the beginning: first a report on possible ordinances is created, then an ordinance is written, then the Council votes."
