-- On Thursday February 28th, members and supporters of ABATE of Wisconsin will be converging on the Wisconsin State Capitol Building from all over the state in a grass-roots lobbying effort. Over 1000 motorcyclists have attended the annual Lobby Day event over the past several years and ABATE of Wisconsin is expecting another record breaking turnout in 2013.
ABATE of Wisconsin's 2013 legislative agenda will include reaffirming their position on the current state helmet law, correcting the lack of state funding of motorcycle safety programs as well as the misallocation of funds for the current programs. ABATE of Wisconsin will also continue to highlight their commitment to motorcycle safety by informing the legislators of their successful self-funded programs such as Share the Road and the annual awareness rallies that are held around the state.
ABATE of Wisconsin will be staffing an information and registration center across from the Capitol Building at Inn on the Park starting at 9:00 AM. Members and supporters will be able to receive information and materials to distribute during their visits to their legislators. All motorcyclists are encouraged to attend - No experience is necessary. Meetings with most legislators have already been set so there will be plenty of other motorcyclists to attend with those who are less experienced.
ABATE of Wisconsin which was founded in 1974 is a motorcycle rights and safety organization dedicated to "Freedom of the Road". ABATE of Wisconsin's goal is to give the motorcyclists of Wisconsin a strong, united voice with regard to their future, their way of life, their safety and their legal rights as motorcyclists and citizens.
