Legislative Update - March 2015
Motorcycle Day at the Dome was held on Monday, February 23rd. We did not have the turnout from the motorcycle community we have seen in the past. That may have been because it was held on a Monday instead of Wednesday, and it rained a couple of times, but all in all it was still a good day.
I would like to thank all the people who made it a priority and showed up to meet with their legislators. A special Thank You to the members of ALMA MC for their help with traffic control again this year, and thanks to all the other clubs that came out. As for the legislators, we had 14 from the House, 10 from the Senate, 8 security staff, 4 from the Governor’s office and 32 Staff members. 62 riders signed in and several more who did not sign in. Thank you again to everyone who came out to make this event successful. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
HB2345, the bill to remove the handlebar shoulder height restriction passed in the House and is now on it's way to the Senate, scheduled to be heard in the Transportation Committee on Tuesday, March 3rd. We need you to contact your State Senators and let them know you want them to vote YES on this bill.
