U.S. Reps. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) and Michael C. Burgess (R-Texas) introduced a resolution March 28 calling attention to motorcycle profiling and promoting collaboration between motorcyclists and law enforcement agencies.
The non-binding resolution is similar to one the U.S. Senate adopted in 2018.
The American Motorcyclist Association supports both resolutions, as well as anti-profiling legislation that has been passed in several states.
“Michigan has a strong and vibrant riding community, myself included, that use motorcycles as a source of recreation and transportation,” Walberg said. “Making sure riders are free from profiling coincides with motorcyclists’ appreciation for our law enforcement community. I’m proud to work with Rep. Burgess on this effort to foster a greater understanding of the issue of motorcycle profiling and ensure our roads and highways are safe for all to enjoy.”
The resolution (H.Res. 255) is available at https://tinyurl.com/y5pmju84.
Walberg and Burgess are co-chairs of the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus.
