Shaheen Introduces Bipartisan Resolution to Address Motorcycle Profiling

May 05, 2017

(Washington DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) joined a bipartisan, bicameral group of lawmakers to introduce a resolution yesterday to address the issue of motorcycle profiling. The resolution aims to promote collaboration between the motorcycle and law enforcement communities. Shaheen was joined on the resolution by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI). U.S. Representatives Tim Walberg (R-MI), Mark Pocan (D-WI), Michael Burgess (R-TX) and Collin Peterson (D-MN) introduced a version in the House.

“Motorcycles are an important part of New Hampshire’s identity and economy, and Granite Staters of all backgrounds should have the freedom to enjoy the open road,” said Shaheen. “This bipartisan resolution aims to encourage an open conversation between the motorcycle community and law enforcement to ensure that our roads remain safe for Granite State motorcyclists and drivers alike.”
