Bill to make Harley-Davidson the official Wisconsin motorcycle stalls

December 17, 2009
MADISON – A proposal to name Harley-Davidson as the official Wisconsin motorcycle has stalled in the state Legislature.

The sponsor of the bill asked that a vote in committee to send it to the full Assembly for debate be delayed so he can address concerns raised by opponents. Rep. Leon Young, a Democrat from Milwaukee, said following Thursday’s hearing he’s still hopeful the bill hasn’t run out of gas and will pass next month.

Opposition was raised by a group that fights noise pollution. Young says he’s also heard concerns about naming a private company as an official state motorcycle. Harley was founded in Milwaukee and remains based there.

While that idea stalled, another bill naming the bacterium that converts milk into cheese as the official state microbe passed easily 7-1.
