Federal Bill of Interest to Motorcyclists

Wednesday, 19 March 2014 13:17

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation reports that the United States House of Representatives has passed a bill that would end a federal subsidy for biofuel blender pumps in rural areas. The measure passed by a vote of 251-166.  The Senate is expected to vote on the matter next week and there is little that those in support of the subsidies can do to reinstate the money. President Obama is expected to sign the legislation into law.

Putting an end to these subsidies will likely result in less biofuel blender pumps in the market place and therefore less E-15 fuel.  As most of you know, E-15 is gasoline that is blended with 15% ethanol.  Obviously that is a 50% increase in ethanol over the standard E-10 that most of us are used to seeing and using.  There are questions regarding how E-15 will affect engines, especially smaller ones.  The Motorcycle Industry Counsel claims that E-15 could affect engine durability and deterioration.  Further, if your motorcycle is damaged by E-15, you have no legal recourse.   Passage of this bill should be welcome news to all motorcycle riders.

Equal Access Bill Advancing Through Senate with Unanimous Support - by Matt Danielson

~ March 13, 2014 ~

The Motorcycle Equal Access Bill passed its second reading in the South Carolina Senate by a unanimous vote.  After the third reading, which is usually a formality, the bill will go to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law. The bill amends the Code of South Carolina to prohibit the Department of Transportation from discriminating against motorcycles, motorcycle operators, or motorcycle passengers.  One way it does this is by prohibiting motorcycles from being denied access to highways, bridges or transportation facilities that are maintained or have been constructed with public funds.  Under this bill, cities, counties and towns will have to make reasonable accommodations for motorcycle parking in lots and garages that were built or are maintained in whole or in part with public funds.  It is fundamentally unfair to deny motorcyclists access to public facilities which are maintained or were constructed with their tax dollars.

Members of ABATE of South Carolina continue to work hard to make H3231 the law of the land in the Palmetto State.  The bill amends the Code of South Carolina to prohibit the Department of Transportation from discriminating against motorcycles, motorcycle operators, or motorcycle passengers.  One way it does this is by prohibiting motorcycles from being denied access to highways, bridges or transportation facilities that are maintained or have been constructed with public funds.  Under this bill, cities, counties and towns will have to make reasonable accommodations for motorcycle parking in lots and garages that were built or are maintained in whole or in part with public funds.  It is fundamentally unfair to deny motorcyclists access to public facilities which are maintained or were constructed with their tax dollars.

 

The bill, which was presented by Senator Grooms, was heard in the Senate Transportation Committee which he chairs.  It unanimously received a favorable report.  The bill now goes to the full Senate.
