Consumer Education on Ethanol H.R. 7731 Call-To-Action

    In May, President Biden announced the Environmental Protection Agency would temporarily lift the summer restrictions on the sale of gasoline with 15% ethanol (E15). In response Representative Austin Scott (R-GA) and Representative Lois Frankel (D-FL) introduced the Consumer Protection and Fuel Transparency Act of 2022 (H.R. 7731). H.R. 7731 requires more detailed labeling of gas pumps that dispense E15 fuel. Clearer labeling of E15 at the pump will warn consumers about the harmful impacts of misfuelling so consumers can better protect their engines.

    Unfortunately, most consumers are not aware that these fuel blends may be causing damage to their vehicle. A recent survey found 3 in 5 consumers mistakenly believe that E15 is safe for use in all their products. Motorcycles, boats, pre-2001 model year vehicles, and outdoor power equipment are especially at risk to E15 blends. Please click "HERE" to help us tell your Representative that consumer education on E15 is needed and ask them to cosponsor H.R. 7731.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) have introduced the bipartisan Outdoor Recreation Act (S. 3266) to support and grow recreational opportunities on public land. This act will support outdoor recreation opportunities by directing land managers to assess current recreational trends, thereby improving visitation data, providing assistance to gateway communities that serve visitors, and increasing opportunities for motorized and non-motorized recreation on public lands.

    This act aims to expand opportunities for motorized off-highway vehicle users and will lay the groundwork for the continued growth of outdoor recreation on our nation's public lands.

    Tomorrow, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will consider this legislation. Please Tell Your Senators to Support The Outdoor Recreation Act and let them know that you support this piece of legislation.

    Please share this link with other motorcyclists who want to support responsible motorized recreation.

Chainsaws, Golf Carts, Lawn Mowers... What's Next?
10/11/2021 9:05 PM

    Over the weekend, California Governor Gavin Newson signed a bill into law banning the sale of all off-road, gas-powered engines, including generators, lawn equipment, pressure washers, chainsaws, weed trimmers, and even golf carts. Under the new law, these machines must be zero-emissions, meaning they will have to be either battery-powered or plug-in.

    This law is particularly concerning because of the status California holds within the national economy. The population and market size that California commands often forces manufacturers to react by changing products nationwide, to conform to California standards. Additionally, states with like-minded legislatures often follow with similar laws and regulations of their own.

    The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) is concerned that this action by California, will begin a cascading effect that will eventually result in the demise of the internal combustion engine and the fuel supply tied to it. During the legislative agenda setting meeting, held at the 2021 Meeting of the Minds, in Atlanta, Georgia this very issue was debated. Working with our state partners, the MRF is currently evaluating how best to address these concerns. The final 2022 MRF Legislative Agenda will be made public in an upcoming American Biker Journal.

  (10-22-21)         One of the most important events at Meeting of the Minds is the legislative strategy session. Each year, during this session, state motorcycle rights groups develop the federal legislative priorities for the following year. Items are discussed, debated and eventually voted on, with each Sustaining State Motorcyclists’ Rights Organization (SSMRO) having a voice and a vote. Legislative priorities are placed in one of three categories, “High,” “Medium” and “Monitor”. These priorities will serve as a roadmap for the Motorcycle Riders Foundation Washington D.C. team, as we focus on 2022.........( Read more....)

  (5-29-2021)     I am writing this from “Bikers inside the Beltway,” our annual trip to Washington D.C. to remind the people who are here in the U.S. capitol we are here, we vote and will fight for our rights. Washington didn’t look like we are used to seeing it. There was a security fence all the way around the U.S. Capitol Building. NOT a friendly and welcoming sight. But it is getting better. Up until just recently there were fences around the Senate Office Buildings, the House Office Buildings and there were 2 fences around the Capitol Building. I will be a whole lot happier when all the fences are down. Those buildings belong to every American and should be open and accessible as the can safely be.................( Read more....)

  (11-4-2021)   Here in Ohio, one of the biggest is HB 338, which is a bill to modify motorcycle training in Ohio. If you refer to the front page of the State website, there is an explanation of the bill and Abate's response to it. We are currently in the process of trying to keep this bill from coming out of the Transportation committee. Please contact your Representatives and voice your opposition to this bill. If you have any questions, please contact myself, Ed Schetter or Mike Stock.
    On the Federal level, the usual issues are still out there-the passage of the Transportation Bill (which has been punted again by Congress), the RPM Act, E-15 concerns, autonomous vehicle legislation.................. ( Read more )
