Congressmen Filner, Kirk, Kuhl, Wamp and Walberg to attend MRF press conference
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation would like to announce that several members of the United States Congress will be attending our scheduled press conference in Washington on November 15.
The following congressman have committed to attending:
Congressman Bob Filner (CA-51st) Chairman, House Committee on Veterans Affairs
Congressman Mark Kirk (IL-10th) Committee on Appropriations
Congressman Randy Kuhl (NY-29th) Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure
Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-7th) Committee on Education and Labor
Congressman Zack Wamp (TN-3rd) Committee on Appropriations
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is extremely pleased to have this distinguished group of statesmen join us in discussing with the nation's press the shortcomings of the National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB) recommendations on motorcycle safety of September 11, 2007.
The press conference will be held on the United States Capitol grounds in Washington DC. The exact location is the Cannon House Office Building, Room 121. Starting time is 9:15 am EST.
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation will also be discussing our efforts to seek congressional support to stop the NTSB from using taxpayer dollars to pressure states into enacting mandatory helmet laws. In addition we will be announcing to the press that we will be presenting a formal letter to the NTSB asking them to reconsider their recommendations that states enact mandatory helmet laws for motorcycle riders.
Many State Motorcyclist Rights Organization members are in Washington this week to lobby their own congressional delegations, in addition to attending the conference.
All motorcyclists are invited to attend this event. In addition the MRF is extending an invitation to all concerned Americans.
MRF Vice President
