Please contact your State Senator TODAY to urge them to vote YES on HB 5438, legislation that will enhance driver’s education in Michigan to include more “information concerning the laws pertaining to bicycles and motorcycles and…emphasize awareness of their operation on the streets, roads, and highways of this state.”
On Wednesday June 4th, 2014 HB 5438 unanimously passed the House of Representatives. Now we need your help to ensure it passes in the Senate as well!
The bill, which has been coined "Nathan's Law," after 19-year-old motorcyclist Nathan Bower who was killed when another driver struck him, now heads to the Senate Judiciary Committee for consideration. Not only did the bill pass the House unanimously with 108 Ayes (and 2 Absent), but it also picked up an additional 16 co-sponsors on the House Floor. In total, an astounding 90 out of 110 Representatives signed on as sponsors to this important common sense legislation.
Thank you in advance for taking action on this important matter to help improve bicycle safety in Michigan.
