Lobby Day 2013

The Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists and Tom McGrath’s Motorcycle Law group would like to invite all interested motorcyclists to attend this year’s Motorcycle Lobby Day. This year it will be held on Monday January 21, 2013. This is a holiday so many people are off. That morning Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists lobbyists, as well as members of other state motorcycle rights organizations, independent motorcyclists and any other interested people will go to the Virginia General assembly to discuss upcoming legislation that effects motorcyclists in Virginia with their Delegates and Senators.
On Sunday January 20, from 1:00 pm until we get through, Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists lobbyists will lead an informational meeting at the
Wyndham Richmond Hotel
4700 S Laburnum Ave,
Henrico, Virginia 23231
to discuss this year’s legislation effecting motorcyclists. We will also discuss how to talk to your legislators about these issues in case you have never done that. Later that evening attendees will enjoy a free homemade BBQ dinner made by Stewart Newton and provided by several Virginia motorcycle rights organizations including ABATE of Virginia and the Virginia Bikers Association.

On Monday the 21st we leave the Wyndham at 8:00 am sharp for our annual trip to the Capitol. After lobbying our legislators, we will attend the opening of the House of Delegates daily session and be recognized from the floor. Afterwards, Tom McGrath’s Motorcycle Law Group takes everyone to Penny Lane Pub for lunch as a thank you for coming to support Virginia Motorcyclists.

I encourage everyone who can to join us. It is a lot of fun, it is educational, and most importantly it shows the legislators that motorcyclists are a significant and active section of the electorate.
