Bike/Ped bill hits snag in Missouri senate

According to a story today on KOLR10, the transportation bill in Missouri's senate--which included several important bike/ped provisions--has hit a serious snag:
It seemed like a done deal. After extensive debate over two days, the Senate was on the verge of passing a bill making several changes in Missouri's traffic safety laws.

But no vote was taken. Instead, after colleagues prolonged the deliberations with more and more amendments, the sponsor angrily shelved the bill and said he didn't want it passed after all - even as senators shouted that he should proceed with it.

See another, older story about the transportation bill (about a different provision of the bill, which makes it more difficult for cities to make a lot of money from "speed traps" on state highways) here.
