Michigan Gov. Granholm gets bill allowing helmet-less motorcyclists
June 5, 2008 by Hersey
LANSING – For the second time in two years, the Legislature has voted to allow adults to ride motorcycles in Michigan without a helmet.
And for the second time, Gov. Jennifer Granholm likely will veto it.
The House on Wednesday gave final approval, 70-38, to bill that would allow motorcyclists ages 21 and older to pay the state $100 a year for a permit to ride with no helmet. They’d have to pass a motorcycle safety course and have been licensed for two previous years.
