Congressional summer recess is upon us!
Now through September 5th, the U.S. Senate and House have adjourned and completed their commitments to the political conventions. They are at work in their home states and districts — making now the perfect time to schedule a meeting with your elected official! Establishing and maintaining relationships with your elected officials and their staff in your home state is an important and effective way to further our mission, especially as we need their support on a pending measure!
In July, Reps. Reid Ribble (Wisc.) and Tim Walberg introduced House Resolution 831. This measure is the first step in addressing concerns over motorcycle profiling across America by defining the issue and encouraging education and collaboration between law enforcement and the motorcyclist community. Now is the time to ask your elected officials to consider adding their name as a co-sponsor to H.Res.831!
