The Motorcycle Riders Foundation Legislative Strategy Agenda for 2011-2012
At the 2011 Motorcycle Riders Foundation’s (MRF) Meeting of the Minds Conference held in September in Detroit, Michigan, a Legislative Strategy Session was hosted by the MRF's Legislative Committee. As has been done for the past several years, the MRF requested that it be attended by Sustaining State Motorcyclists' Rights Organizations (SSMRO) Legislative and/or Executive Officers. The goal was to set the MRF's Federal Legislative Agenda for the 2011 Meeting of the Minds to 2012 Meeting of the Minds annual cycle.
The MRF's SSMRO partners responded once again with a majority attendance, and the Legislative Committee was extremely pleased at the aligned and clear direction from our SSMRO partners. This level of alignment will allow for a solid and focused Strategic Action Plan to be developed, disseminated, and effectively employed. The session this year was moderated by MRF Vice President Jay Jackson, supported by MRF Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs Jeff Hennie and MRF President Kirk "Hardtail" Willard.
MRF continued the practice instituted last year, recording
one vote per organization. Shown below in the order raised
and discussed with our SSMROs is the MRF’s Legislative
Strategy Agenda for 2011-2012.
MRF LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE MEMBERS: Kirk “Hardtail” Willard (Chair), Keith Ball, Dave Dwyer, Jeff Hennie, Cindy Hodges, Jay Jackson, Jim “Legs” Korte, Boyd McFail, Larry Nielson, John Pierce, Todd Riba
