MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Assembly has signed off on a bill that would define autocycles in state law and establish registration fees for the vehicles.
Autocycles are three-wheeled vehicles that can seat one or two people.
The Republican-sponsored bill would define an autocycle as a vehicle with three wheels that come in contact with the ground, seating that doesn’t require straddling and a steering wheel. The bill would establish a $45 annual registration fee and allow anyone with a regular driver’s license to operate one.
The Assembly approved the bill unanimously on Tuesday. The Senate passed it in October. It now goes next to Gov. Tony Evers, who can sign it into law or veto it.
The governor’s spokeswoman, Melissa Baldauff, didn’t immediately respond to an email asking if Evers supports the bill.
