On Monday, June 9th the United States House of Representatives will vote on a measure that could be detrimental to motorcyclists. H.R. 4745 is an Appropriations bill, that contains language in section 102, that would allow the Secretary of Transportation or his designee to lobby states to consider proposals to reduce motorcycle fatalities.
Section 102 of H.R. 4745 contains this language and Congressman Walberg (MI) and Congressman Sensenbrenner (WI) have an amendment filed that would strike this language. Call your Congressman and ask that they support the Walberg/Sensenbrenner amendment to strike section 102 from H.R. 4745.
Legislative business begins at 2:00 pm on June 9th, with votes scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm. H.R. 4745 will be voted on sometime on June 9th. We have to call every congressman repeatedly on this Monday June 9, 2014.
