MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Bikes with small rechargeable electric motors that are gaining in popularity would be regulated in a new way under a bill scheduled to pass the Wisconsin Legislature.

The measure up for a vote Tuesday in the state Senate changes how electric bikes, or e-bikes, are regulated under state law. Currently, they are treated as "motor bicycles," which subject them to regulations written for old fashioned gas-powered motor bikes.
