Michigan's revised helmet bill, SB-291, that restores adult choice on helmet usage, arrived on Governor Snyder's desk yesterday (4/2/2012) for signature. He has 14 days from yesterday to either sign it or veto. If he does neither, it automatically becomes law after the 14 day period has passed.
We need everyone here to help us out in persuade Governor Snyder to sign the bill. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and ask him to sign the bill. If you are not living in Michigan, please tell the Governor that you would love to visit Michigan and ride our great roads and spend lots of money...but you currently do not because you would be forced to buy/wear a helmet against your will.
Also, if you prefer to call (or will do both), the phone numbers are:
- Governor’s Constituent Relations Office: 1-517-335-7858. This number is to voice your opinion. They may not want your name, just your opinion. This is the most important # to call.
- Governor’s Capitol Office Phone: 1-517-373-3400. May be a recording or a staff member.
- S.E. Michigan Office (Detroit): 1-313-456-1837. May be a recording or a staff member.
- Northern Michigan Office (Marquette): 1-906-228-2850. Same as above!
We will keep this up to go on for as long as it takes. Make copies to hand out at Swap Meets, “HOG” meetings, local motorcycle shops, motorcycle events, and anywhere else you can.
Please do this today...click on the link now and send a note to Governor Snyder. The clock is ticking...
