The bill is supported by Harley-Davidson, ABATE of Wisconsin, and the Motorcycle Riders Foundation.
“Harley-Davidson thanks Congressman Gallagher for his introduction of this bill to re-authorize and reinstate the Motorcycle Advisory Council, which provides critical stakeholder input from motorcyclists to the Department of Transportation during the policy implementation process. This legislation is a crucial step in ensuring the safety and inclusion of motorcycle riders on our nation’s roadways,” said Edward Moreland, Vice President of Government Affairs at Harley-Davidson.
“It’s critical that motorcyclists have a seat at the table when the federal government considers transportation policy. The motorcycle riders of Wisconsin thank Rep. Gallagher for remembering that motorcyclists deserve a voice in Washington D.C.,” said Steve Panten, Legislative Director ABATE of Wisconsin.
“The bill introduced by Rep. Gallagher ensures that the nearly 10 million bikers in America are included in the discussion surrounding our nation’s transportation network. No conversation about our roads, bridges or infrastructure is complete unless all roadway users have a voice,” said Kirk Willard, President of the Motorcycle Riders Foundation.
