Insurance Amendment Added To Motorcycle Helmet Debate
Vote on keeping or repealing law too close to call

Lawmakers stopped short of a first-round vote Tuesday on whether to keep or repeal Nebraska’s requirement that motorcyclists wear helmets. Approval of an amendment suggest a vote on the repeal measure will be close.

Almost annually for the past 20 years, lawmakers have failed to repeal the helmet law. Sen. Charlie Janssen of Fremont introduced the repeal measure. He said after debate Tuesday that the vote was too close to call.

The amendment that was approved would require that motorcyclists have insurance for long-term care. A proposed amendment would require more insurance, at least $1 million, to cover injuries.
