Missouri House committee considers ‘Helmet Holiday’ bill for Sturgis attendees

A Missouri state representative has proposed a “Helmet Holiday” bill that would allow adults to go helmet-free during the month of August, encouraging those riding to Sturgis to stop in the state.

Rep.

His bill and another, which would lift the helmet law for anyone over age 21, were discussed at a House General Laws committee meeting last week.
