There have been several bills introduced this session. Motorcycle trade in tax for 2024, Also one that includes trucks along with motorcycles
for the sales Tax credit. Lane splitting Bill was introduced also, All were sent to committees for consideration at a later date. RIMA will follow closely.
We look forward to being back riding again shortly with everyone as the weather improves. Those of you who are out now stay safe with the
road conditions and drivers not ready for us.
