ABATE of Michigan
Fighting for the rights of all motorcyclists since 1976
Been pretty busy here in Michigan! Well not so much Lansing. They have the ideal jobs. I never had all those days off! Guess I should have chosen a different profession!
Anyway complaining on to business. There are a few bills we are working on.
HB4466 Hands free phones only
HB 4480 Handlebars height raising from 15” to 30”
HB 4525 Concerns the definition of the autocycle it isn’t a motorcycle but they want to plate it as one. And use the stats on with motorcycles.
HB 4633 Allowing us to get a two year registration instead of one.
This one is going good HB4306 for motorcycle awareness. It will do the following:. Increase the endorsement from $13.50 to $16.00 and renewal from $5 to $7. Also increase motorcycle registration $23 to $26.
This will create a new MOTORCYCLE SAFETY AWARENESS FUND, to which $2.50 of each new endorsement, and $2.00 from each renewed endorsement would be ear marked to fund public service messages of
LOOK TWICE & SAVE A LIFE!
The $3 increase in the motorcycle registration fee would be earmarked for the Motorcycle Safety program which provides for the rider skill courses. Currently $3 of every motorcycle registration fee is earmarked for that fund, so this would increase that contribution to $6 per registration.
It is sitting on the governor’s desk waiting his decision!!! See you all at the meeting of the minds September 21-25 in Williamsburg VA! Dead line to register for the reduced rate is August 25 for the conference.
Also same date for room reservation for the $109 per night. Phone 757-220-2500 DoubleTree Williamsburg.
SEE YOU ALL THERE!!!!!
