We have a lot going on in Lansing including two bills – HB-4306 & SB-160.  HB4306 is a small fee increase on plates to fund motorcycle awareness and ed. SB160 is to clarify the “autocycle” definition which includes the Polaris “Slingshot”.  The legislature is on Easter break until April 18 but there will still be staff in their offices.  We are having a “Legislative Day” at the Capitol on Wednesday April 19 @ 9:30 a.m. and need people there.  We need you and your members to contact the legislators offices in your Region about HB-4306 and ask their staff to find out where their office stands.  We need this done this week.  We want their support on 4306. We have gotten some push back because some legislators are calling the fee increases a “tax”.  If you have any questions or need additional info please contact me via e-mail or phone.  Remember the Freedom Rally in Lansing on May 31.  BE THERE!!!

Please contact Alice @ 586-757-0939 or by email @ ajacob2549@wideopenwest.com for all the information needed.
