Walberg Introduces Bipartisan Resolution to Address Motorcycle Profiling
Washington, D.C.—Today, U.S. Representatives Tim Walberg (R-MI), Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Cheri Bustos (D-IL), and Mark Pocan (D-WI) introduced a bipartisan resolution highlighting motorcycle profiling and promoting collaboration between the motorcycle and law enforcement communities. The lawmakers are all members of the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus, of which Reps. Walberg and Burgess serve as co-chairs.
“Michigan has a strong and vibrant riding community, myself included, that use motorcycles as a source of recreation and transportation,” said Congressman Walberg. “As I talk with my fellow motorcyclists, I often hear about the need to bring increased awareness to the issue of motorcycle profiling in hopes of finding a better solution. Our bipartisan resolution is an important step to help prevent instances of profiling so riders are free to enjoy the open road.”
“Texas is fortunate to be home to thousands of motorcyclists who take to the roads safely each day. Serving as a founder and a co-chair of the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus, I am committed to advocating for these riders. This resolution ensures motorcyclists are treated equitably as they enjoy the open road,” said Congressman Burgess.
