Legislation to repeal a state law requiring Michigan motorcyclists to wear helmets passed the state House yesterday.
Under the bill, approved 69-39, motorcyclists 21 and older would have the option of riding helmet-free if they have two years of experience or have taken a safety course, and if they buy at least $20,000 in medical insurance, according to a story in the Detroit Free Press.
The bill will now return to the state Senate, which already passed a similar version in June. If the Senate agrees with changes made in the House, the bill will be sent to Gov. Rick Snyder for approval.
What do you think about the motorcycle helmet law in Michigan? Do you think it should be repealed?
