California Senate Bill 969 (SB 969) seeks to modify the existing helmet requirement by making helmets optional for riders 18 years of age and older, and who possess health insurance, and who possess a motorcycle endorsement on their driver's license (a motorcycle license).

Actually, every year a similar bill is submitted into the California Legislature, and every year it doesn't make it out of committee. I'm told, however that SB 969 has a chance of making it out of committee, though I really don't understand why this is any different.

This bill is currently under evaluation by the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee, which consists of 9 Democrats and 5 Republicans. Assuming that all the Democrats (liberals) are against the helmet repeal, this bill has no chance.

I don't mean to be pessimistic. There's always a chance in the future. I hope one day the helmet law actually does get repealed. Right now, California is controlled by liberals, and liberals hate it when people have lots of money to spend. And that's the heart of the issue.

In the United States, motorcycles are a luxury item. When people spend $15K to $30K buying up Harley Davidsons, liberals see it as a lot of people who have too much money on their hands. They feel that people who can afford to make payments on a Harley Davidson, have too much going for them, and should be taxed more to make things fair. It's a matter of liberal politicians wanting to punish motorcycle riders for buying up loud obnoxious big-twin bikes, supporting Freedom, supporting the military, and resisting the hand of Big Brother.

It's not a safety issue, it's not a public health issue. It's a hate issue.
