Michigan Governor Again Vetoes Motorcycle Helmet Bill

June 16, 2008

Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, as expected, has vetoed a bill that would have let motorcyclists ride without helmets in Michigan.

She announced the veto Friday.

Granholm vetoed a similar bill in 2006.

The latest legislation had some differences from the previous version. But Granholm said her concerns about safety and insurance costs remain the same.

It would take a two-thirds vote of both chambers of the state Legislature to override Granholm’s veto and change Michigan’s mandatory helmet law.
