Please read the MRF notice below.  ABATE is asking for your help.  Whether
you believe everyone should wear a helmet or not, it is NOT the federal
governments place to enact helmet laws.it's a states' issue at best.  A
helmet bill is buried in the 350-page document known as President Obama's
GROW AMERICA ACT.  Please take the time to write or email the President,
each Senator, and your Congressperson.  Let them know that you are not
pleased with the helmet provision in this proposed legislation.   Here's

14NR18 - MRF News Release - Obama Calls for Helmet Laws

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2 May 2014

Contact: <mailto:jeff at mrf.org> Jeff Hennie, Vice President of Government
Relations and Public Affairs



Obama Calls for Helmet Laws

This week President Obama released his ideal version of a transportation
bill. The proposal has a specific provision that would allow the federal
government to push a mandatory helmet law, the Motorcycle Riders Foundation
(MRF) reports.

Parking:Buried in the 350 page document is language that would amend current
United States code, which provides the motorcycle safety money that would
allow "the Secretary [of transportation] or the Secretary's designee [to]
engage in activities with States and State legislators to consider proposals
related to motorcycle helmet use laws."

This provision is unacceptable to the MRF, and it's safe to say, the United
States House of Representatives. Labeled as "Support Activity" in the draft
legislation, it's a thinly veiled stab at a mandatory national helmet law. 

The draft is titled "Generating Renewal, Opportunity, and Work with
Accelerated Mobility, Efficiency, and Rebuilding of Infrastructure and
Communities throughout America," or GROW AMERICA Act. You can read the whole
document here:

The draft legislation also has incentive grants for graduated auto
licensing. 

The MRF urges you to contact your Representative in the House and both of
your Senators. You can reach the United States Capitol switchboard at (202)
224-3121. In addition, the MRF asks that you contact the White House
directly and let them know you are not pleased with the helmet use
provisions of President Obama's GROW AMERICA Act. You can reach the White
House several different ways from this website:
