Legislative Report

Met with NYS Assemblyman Cliff Crouch who co-sponsors the ABATE-supported bill (A06695) which “[e]stablishes a motorcycle safety awareness component as a requirement for licensing.” During the discussion, he indicated that requiring insurance policies notify the insured that “no fault” doesn’t cover motorcycles (A00216/S06455) made both common and economic sense. Assemblywoman Lupardo didn’t make set meeting and needs to be rescheduled.

ABATE's Legislative Position (support, oppose, no position) Paper

Search for motorcycle related bills: Notes:
  1. Both sites list bills from both the NYS Senate and Assembly.  However, there are minor discrepancies between the two sites and it is recommended that you review both sites.
  2. Single-house bills rarely get out of committee.

Reporting Roadblock Abuses

On Monday, Aug 29th (2011), I met with the New York State Attorney General's Representative to discuss the roadblock abuses. I requested an invesigation into the actions of the state police. They were receptive to our complaint and we now have a mechanism to report all incidents directly to the Attorney General's Office. If you or anyone you know has been a victim of motorcycle profiling, call me at 518-239-4560 and I will help you to file a complaint. Let's follow through on this and let them know we're fed up with the harassment.
