Michigan's legislature is close to sending the governor a bill that would allow motorcyclists to opt out of the State's helmet law by purchasing a $100.00 permit.

The bill would also provide a volume-discount option allowing 3-years of helmetless riding for $200.00.

The caveat is that motorcyclists would also have to carry $20,000 in personal injury health insurance, pass a motorcycle safety course, and have been a licensed motorcycle rider for at least two years.

The governor, who is a staunch supporter of mandatory helmet laws, is expected to veto the bill.

State senators, however, hope that the governor will approve this one, having inserted a requirement that all monies raised from the permits be applied towards law enforcement.
