THE AMERICAN MOTORCYCLIST ASSOCIATION URGES YOU TO CALL YOUR U.S. SENATORS NOW AND SAY "NO!" TO HR146!

PRESERVE YOUR RIGHT-TO-RIDE ON 2.1 MILLION ACRES OF AMERICA!

Subject: Omnibus Public Lands Bill to be Voted on Monday, March 16!

The American Motorcyclist Association urges everyone to contact their Senators to vote "No" on H.R. 146, the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Acquisition Grant Program. This bill was formerly known as S. 22, the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, which would prohibit all motorized vehicle access including motorcycles and ATVs on over 2 million acres of public lands. As you may know, S. 22 was defeated just days ago on March 11 in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Now, following defeat of the bill, the U.S. Senate leadership is expected to employ a little used parliamentary procedure that allows them to overcome the outcome of the House vote on S. 22:

The U.S. House of Representatives preserved your access to vital public lands when S. 22 fell two votes short of the two-thirds majority needed to pass on March 11th. The successful defeat of the bill was only accomplished after thousands of concerned individuals, like you, contacted their Representatives to tell them to oppose the legislation. However, the Senate Leadership wants to try and undo that success by bringing the bill back as a 1,300 page amendment to an unrelated bill [H.R. 146] for a vote as early as Monday:

With such a short timeframe for action, the best way to tell your Senators to vote "No" on H.R. 146 is to call. Click here to get the phone number for your Senators:

...If you would prefer to contact your Senators with e-mail, you may contact your Senators by clicking here. We have pre-written a letter for your use:

Immediate action is critical to help keep 2.1 million acres of public land open to motorized recreation. Please call your Senators and tell everyone you can to do the same.

Next week, every Senator must know to vote "No" on H.R. 146!

Subject: FW: Subject: Amend Nevada's Helmet Law

IronBoltBruce,

Please forward this CALL TO ACTION to all motorcyclists.

Nevada has a helmet bill introduced as of today, it is AB300. We are presenting the bill primarily as a tourism revenue generator. If motorcyclists are from out of state, let Nevada legislators know that you would visit and vacation in Nevada if it was a freedom of choice state.

Thank you,

John Bland
NV MRF Rep.
Northern Nevada ABATE President

E-mail, Call and Write the Transportation Committee Members and ask them to support AB300.

This bill eliminates the requirement of wearing protective headgear for drivers of motorcycles who: (1) are 21 years of age or older; (2) have possessed a valid motorcycle license for not less than 1 year; and (3) have completed an approved motorcycle safety course. This bill eliminates the requirement of wearing headgear for a passenger of a motorcycle who is 21 of age or older.

You can see the bill on the Legislative web site:

These are the key points you can use in your correspondence to the Legislators:

  • Nevada has a tourism based economy and amending Nevada's helmet law will encourage motorcyclists to visit Nevada.
  • When states modify mandatory helmet laws - sales, ownership and riders sharply increase.
  • Amending Nevada's helmet law will generate millions of dollars for Nevada without raising taxes through increased motorcycle sales and tourism....
  • Motorcycles are 6% of national traumatic brain injuries, Bicycles are 7%, Pedestrians are 13%, Occupants of Enclosed Motor Vehicles are 62%, Others are 12%. Motorcycle injuries are not a cost burden to tax payers.

Contact legislators on the Assemly Transportation Committee and ask them to support AB300

Proposed Motorcycle Smog Check Legislation, California SB435:

http://tinyurl.com/am6sxx

Quote from Jeff Hennie of the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF.org):

"[ A California State Senator ] has introduced legislation [ SB435 ] that would require motorcycles to participate in the state's vehicle "smog check" program. The program was designed to service cars and because of that motorcycles were exempt "until the Department of Consumer Affairs implements test procedures applicable to motorcycles" according to standing California state law. Senator Fran Pavley (D) is the main sponsor of the bill which would require all motorcycles beginning with model year 2000 to be tested starting in 2012.... This bill is problematic for a number of reasons. First off, it provides for no funding for the development of testing procedures. Secondly, no funding for the accommodation of the new 1.2 million motorcycles at the check stations. This will result in a financial burden for the California government at a time when every penny is already spoken for.... In the MRF's view, the California state legislature should reconsider this motion. When the funding is available, it would then seem more feasible to invest in proper investigatory programs to best determine how to test motorcycles or if it is even necessary."
