WA Legislative alert

In order to help balance the state budget a number of proposals are being floated that call for the reduction or elimination of advisory boards. This includes the board that monitors the WA State Motorcycle Safety Program. The bills in question are:

HB 2087: Eliminates the board in its entirety (see section 34)

HB 1497: Kills the entire motorcycle safety training program (see section 901 (12))

SB 5588: Suspends the entire program until July 1, 2011 (see section 109)

This would not only be a huge blow for motorcycle safety training in this state but it is also highly pointless. The program in question is entirely funded by the fees paid by motorcyclists when they renew their motorcycle endorsements. Eliminating the program or the board wouldn't save a dime.

So please write to your legislator and let them know how you feel about this. You can find out who your legislators are at this page: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder/Default.aspx
