Motorcycle Profiling Law Has Momentum in California Assembly

Updating a previous post concerning proposed legislation in California to end profiling of motorcyclists by law enforcement, the California State Assembly Committee on Public Safety held a public hearing and voted 5-2 to give favorable recommendation to AB 2972. Almost the entire room was filled with motorcycle club members and bikers from all over the state, in support of the measure.

AB 2972 is the result of the hard work of the California Motorcycle Anti-Profiling Coalition (CMAPC), a group formed nearly two years ago in an effort to push for a new profiling law in California. The CMAPC took a unique approach, combining the efforts of nearly every group involved in motorcycle rights all over the state of California.
