A repeal of the state motorcycle helmet law has won preliminary approval in the House. Sponsor Gary Dusenberg of Blue Springs says motorcyclists have told him they don’t want the state dictating to them that they wear a helmet. Dusenberg’s bill would lift the requirement that those 21-years-old and older wear a helmet, while maintaining the requirement for cyclists under 21. The bill needs one more positive vote to move to the Senate.
