WASHINGTON, DC – This week the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) released its 2017 Legislative Agenda to its members. A direct result of the commentary and discussion from attendees at the Legislative Strategy Session held at the annual Meeting of the Minds, this exercise establishes the MRF’s Federal Legislative Agenda for the upcoming year.
“Our legislative agenda, which is determined by our members each year, ensures that the MRF is laser-focused on those issues important to motorcyclists nationwide,” said President Kirk ‘Hardtail’ Willard. “Our network of volunteers and staff are some of the most talented and influential in the world of motorcycle rights, and we look forward to working with President-Elect Trump, his administration and our Senate and House leaders in identifying legislation that will enhance the motorcycle lifestyle and community.”
The MRF’s legislative agenda showcases the diverse range of interests that the organization advocates on behalf of each year, with issues impacting independent riders, State Motorcycle Rights Organizations, motorcycle and riding clubs, and others in this diverse community. In addition, the Agenda prioritizes aggressive campaigns to combat government overreach with a particular emphasis on the Environmental Protection Agency and other state environment agencies whose policies adversely impact the motorcycle parts and aftermarket industry.
