Road Guarding Bills Pass Committees

Good News on Road Guarding Bills

This week SF1719 and HF2008, the bills to allow trained and certified motorcyclists to road guard during motorcycle runs, passed both the Senate and House Transportation Committees. While there were questions and concerns brought up during discussion, in the end both bills passed by unanimous voice vote with no amendments. Mack Backlund, State Coordinator for ABATE of Minnesota, testified in favor before both committees and answered questions from the committee members. Mr. Backlund thanks Chairmans Gimse and Beard for hearing the bills in their respective committees and Senator Hoffman and Representative Nornes for authoring the bills. This language has a long way to go in the process before becoming law, but passage in the Senate and House Transportation Committees is a great start. An overview of the bill language is listed below.  For more information contact Todd Riba at toddriba@gmail.com

Many thanks to all who have helped in any way.

What is ABATE University? ABATE University is ABATE of Minnesota's annual conference held at the Holiday Inn, Alexandria, MN, April 27 through 29 2012, to enlighten and educate motorcyclists about the philosophy, overall objectives, and procedures of ABATE of Minnesota and provide safety and legislative workshops for all motorcyclists.
