Helmet Bill

POSTED IN: Legislative Updates,

Allows motorcycle operators over 21 years of age, who have completed a motorcycle safety education course or who have possessed a motorcycle license for at least two years, to operate a motorcycle without a helmet if they are covered by a health insurance policy. This bill comes up every year and never makes it through. This bill was passed by the House with only 93 votes, which is unusually low for it. It was assigned to the Senate Transportation committee. Please contact your Senators to let them know your opinion.
