On January 18th, motorcyclists from the state of WV welcomed the legislators during the opening of the 74th legislative session. Abate handed out their agenda, tourisim survey and a desk trivet engraved with the ABATE logo, the date and a welcome to the opening session. Since that time the halls of the Capital have been alive with motorcyclists from across the state. Everyone is involved.
Included in the agenda is also an equal access bill, injurious materials on the highway, covered load, tourism, trike license, awareness and vehicular homicide. ABATE has found a sponsor in Delegate Manual (D-Jefferson) for the injurious materials/covered load and equal access on the House side. So, we are working on other issues which are just as important to motorcycling, our safety and freedom.
Again, this year, Delegate Greg Butcher (D-Logan) is working very hard for us along with J.J.Jones from NCOM.
We are in hopes that this will be a successful legislative session for all motorcyclists. Please do what you can to help. The legislative session is very short (45 days) so work that FAX, phone and e-mail. All the numbers can be found by going to the web site listed above.
