LANSING (WWJ) – A State Senate committee could vote as early as Tuesday to repeal Michigan’s motorcycle helmet law.

“It looks like this thing is greased to get out of the Senate committee and maybe greased to get off the senate floor and maybe even through the Michigan House,” said WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick.

“Give them credit. The motorcycle lobby has been in this town for over 30 years trying to repeal the helmet law . They believe they’re beginning to taste victory . The big question mark is: what does Governor Snyder do?”

Skubick said Governor Snyder has left the door open and the motorcycle lobby hopes they can get rid of the law. However, he said AAA says, without the law, the cost of motoring will go up because people without the helmets will have serious injuries that most motorists will have to pay for through their insurance.
