UPDATED CALL TO ACTION on HB4236 and HB4017

SuperUser Account 0 252 Article rating: No rating

UPDATE: The motorcycle community, both club members and independents, are showing that these sneaky, not so subtle attacks on freedom will not be tolerated. AS OF THIS AFTERNOON, HB 4017 WAS REMOVED FROM THE HOUSE COMMITTEE HEARING SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 2019. Sources in the Capitol reported a high volume of registered objections, enough to warrant pulling it from the hearing. This is because of YOUR efforts. BUT, this is no time to start celebrating. There is still time to resubmit this amendment for hearing so we are watching and waiting. For now, there will be no reason to come to the Capitol to register an objection to the amendment but as we have seen, that can change at the drop of the hat.

We are still watching HB 4236, the Body Cam amendment, and have calls in to get further clarification on the intent of the bill. This will remain a hot item to watch pending the answers we receive tomorrow.

Great job reminding that the stripping of Constitutional rights with out the benefit of due process will not be stood for by the patriots here in Texas.

All respect and don't forget,

Ride. Record. Report.

CALL TO ACTION

Community:

This week we have seen the efforts by two Texas Representatives (Representatives Neave and Ramos) working to revoke your right choose whether to ride without a helmet gain momentum when HB 748 was referred to the House Transportation Committee where now it can be collaborated on. The fact that this effort has made it as far as this is not to be taken lightly and should motivate all of us. As a community we must ramp up our efforts to communicate to our legislators that we do not approve of this government overreach.

How can you prevent this from happening? 
1. Brothers and Sisters in District 40 should contact House Transportation Committee Chairman Representative Terry Canales’ (District 40/ Hidalgo, McAllen, Edinburg, etc) office and express your disapproval in a clear, deliberate, and precise manner. It is very important that members of his district contact him and express your disapproval. You are his constituents and was elected to represent your wishes at the Capitol. A link to his contact information is listed here. https://www.txdirectory.com/online/person/…

Call to Action HB 748

On January 11, 2019, we learned that a bill was filed to repeal the current sections of Texas Transportation Code addressing helmet requirements.

Specifically, this House Bill 748 would repeal all exceptions allowing a rider to not wear a helmet. If passed, this would return Texas, a state known for personal freedoms and accountability, back to a mandatory helmet use state. It would be a Class C Misdemeanor to operate your motorcycle without a helmet.How can you prevent this from happening?

1. Contact Representative Victoria Neave’s (District 107/Dallas County) office and express your disapproval in a clear, deliberate, and precise manner. A link to her contact information is listed here and below. https://www.txdirectory.com/online/person/…
