Michigan’s House of Representatives has approved legislation that would repeal the state’s current law, which requires helmets for all motorcyclists.
The new bill, which passed 69-39, would allow riders 21 and older to ride without a helmet if they have amassed two years of riding experience or have taken a safety course and purchased a $20,000 medical insurance policy, according to the Detroit Free Press. The measure now advances to the Senate, which approved an earlier version of the bill in June.
