The not good news and some good news on the Helmet Choice Bill

The Helmet Choice Bill received an Unfavorable Report from the House Environment and Transportation Committee. That is the not good news, it is done for this year. The vote was 14-9 against our freedom. The good news is through our efforts we were able to convince 3 delegates to change their votes from no to yes on supporting our freedom Thank you to all the Delegates who voted for freedom. A link to the vote chart is attached. If your Delegate voted against freedom you need to call them and POLITELY ask why they oppose freedom for motorcyclists and work to change their vote.

Thanks to all the ABATE members who work so hard on this and other issues for motorcyclists in Maryland.
