Mich. lawmakers ponder motorcycle helmet law

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:12 AM

The legislation was likely to be discussed by state lawmakers today and voted on later in the week. The state Senate already has approved the measure.

The bill would allow riders age 21 or older to go without helmets if they meet certain insurance and experience conditions.

Gov. Rick Snyder appeared uninterested in considering the helmet law on its own when it passed the Senate this summer, although he indicated he might consider the change as part of broader auto insurance reform.

The Legislature has passed bills to repeal the state’s mandatory motorcycle helmet law before, but they were vetoed twice by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
