Wolkins’ legislation will take effect July 1, if the governor signs it into law. But he suspects the Legislature may re-assess the rules next year. One issue lawmakers may address, he said, is regulating moped dealers to ensure buyers know the class of bike they are purchasing.
“There is a group of people who simply don’t like regulations, and I’m one of them,” he said. “That’s why it’s so ironic that I’m the guy putting these regulations on mopeds. But the train was leaving station, and I couldn’t stop it this year. So I was going make sure I was going to have some input.”
