UPDATE & CALL TO ACTION – Motorcycle Profiling
Earlier this month you should have received an email from your MRF asking you to seek out your elected officials over the August break asking them to co-sponsor House Resolution 831; the bill that addresses motorcycle profiling.
We’ve had mild success in that we have received commitments from two (2) other members of Congress since then: Rep. Collin Peterson from Minnesota who will serve as our lead Democrat and Rep. John Kline, also from Minnesota. This brings our total of co-sponsors to FOUR – Reps. Ribble (Wisc.), Walberg (Mich.), Peterson (Minn.) and Kline (Minn).
Though this is a good start, it is far from what is needed to advance this measure.
This week is the last week your elected officials are in their home and district offices. It offers you the opportunity to meet with them personally and shore up support for the measure when Congress reconvenes Tuesday, September 6.
I urge you to contact your Member of Congress THIS WEEK and ask them to co-sponsor H.Res.831. To help you in your discussion, below are talking points:

If you need assistance contacting your Member of Congress, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you set up ASAP.
Thank you for your support!
