Today U.S. Sens. Jeanne
Shaheen (D-N.H.), Ron
Johnson ( R.-Wis.), Kelly
Ayotte (R.-N.H.) and Joe
Manchin (D-W.Va.) introduced the Stop Motorcycle Checkpoint Funding
The bill would prohibit federal funding for motorcycle-only checkpoints, limiting the implementation of these discriminatory checkpoints.

During the past two years, federal, state and local governments spent more than a
half million dollars on motorcycle-only checkpoints. The AMA believes that money could have been better spent on programs to
prevent distracted driving or on rider education programs.

This bill is similar to H.R. 1861, introduced by U.S. Rep. Jim
Sensenbrenner last year.
The AMA applauds Sens. Shaheen, Johnson, Ayotte and Manchin for introducing this important bill and thanks them for the opportunity to address the concerns of the motorcycle community.
