Dear Tulsa ABATE,
As we move into the second half of the 116th Congress, we still have more work to do to advance our 2020 legislative priorities. With your help, we can make sure that Congress takes steps to help end the unfair profiling of motorcyclists around the country. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is working with the State Motorcycle Rights Organizations (SMRO), the National Council of Clubs (NCOC), the Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP) and the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM) on the passage of H.Res. 255.
Let's keep the momentum going and ask the U.S. House of Representatives to join their colleagues in the U.S. Senate to pass H.Res. 255. If you have answered our previous calls to action over the past year on motorcyclist profiling, please make sure you click the take action button for our updated profiling engagement! We currently have over 125 bipartisan cosponsors and we would like to increase that number to signal to Congress that this issue is still important to the bikers in America. If your representative is already a cosponsor, the system will send them a thank you on your behalf which also encourages them to ask their colleagues in the House of Representatives to join them.
TAKE ACTION NOW: Tell Congress that targeting a motorcyclist because of their clothes, cut or motorcycle is discriminatory and needs public attention. Support H.Res. 255.

We depend on motorcyclist advocates like you to advance our 2020 legislative priorities on Capitol Hill and we still have more work to do. With your help, we can make sure that Congress takes steps to ensure that motorcyclist organizations regain membership seats on the Motorcyclist Advisory Council.
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF), along with our state motorcyclist rights organizations (SMROs) want to ensure the future Motorcyclist Advisory Council (MAC) is representative of the motorcycling community. We need your help in urging your member of Congress to cosponsor H.R. 5234, the Motorcyclist Advisory Council Reauthorization Act. The bipartisan legislation introduced by Congressmen Mike Gallagher (WI-R) along with Reps. Chris Pappas (NH-D), Harley Rouda (CA-D), and Troy Balderson (OH-R) will reauthorize the Motorcyclist Advisory Council (MAC) for six years and make sure national motorcycle organizations regain seats on the council.
In 2016, Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, or the FAST Act, was signed into law. This comprehensive legislation aims to upgrade our nation's surface transportation infrastructure, enhance roadway safety, and address general highway, roadway and safety-related issues. In addition, the legislation re-established the Motorcyclist Advisory Council or "MAC." The council represents the motorcycle community and have a direct line of communication with the Administrator of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
Regrettably, all but one individual selected were to represent the technical aspects of the Council, including engineering, construction and traffic safety systems as well as roadway data. Only one seat out of ten was designated for a national motorcycle riders' association and speak for the 8.5 million motorcyclists in the U.S.
Let's restore the MAC membership to be more representative of the motorcycling community across the country. Support H.R. 5234.
