On 15 January 2014, an all rider helmet law was introduced in the South Carolina statehouse! H4500 was introduced by Representatives Carl Anderson, Dist. 103 (Georgetown, Horry, and Williamsburg counties, Wendell Gilliard Dist 111, Charleston, and Seth Whipper Dist.113, Charleston, and Dorchester counties. The bill has been assigned to the House Committee on Education and Public Works. None of the primary sponsors are members of that committee.

Because of the deadline to get the newsletter published this information will be a couple of weeks old when you see it. There will be more to follow on this, I am sure. If possible, we will keep you up to date on the website. Chapter, and area coordinators whose email addresses I have will be updated as soon as I have more to put out.

I urge you to contact your member of the South Carolina House of Representatives and POLITELY let him or her know your feelings on this bill.
