U.S. Representative Walter Jones (R-NC) officially joined the Congressional Motorcycle Safety Caucus June 1, joining 11 other Members of Congress, including Caucus Co-chairs Representatives Burgess (R-TX) and Giffords (D-AZ), according to the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC).
The Congressional Motorcycle Safety Caucus is a bipartisan group of Members of Congress committed to improving and advancing the safety of motorcyclists.
“I have been a strong advocate of motorcycle safety for many years now,” Jones said in the MIC press release. “It is important that riders and motorists alike are reminded to take every precaution to keep our riders safe and this caucus serves as a great platform.”
The MIC’s Senior Vice President for Government Relations Kathy Van Kleeck noted, “We are delighted that Congressman Jones has joined the Caucus and look forward to all of his contributions.”
