The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) says it supports Congress’ effort to address the lead ban issue for youth-sized motorcycles and ATVs, but is still concerned with how Congress may amend the language of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008. 

The AMA would like supporters to contact their representative and encourage him or her to support H.R. 412, the Kids Just Want to Ride Act of 2011, which would exempt youth-sized motorcycles and ATVs from the lead content limits in the CPSIA.

Contact information is available at www.AmericanMotorcyclist.com under "Issues and Legislation > Rights." Also, a pre-written letter has been provided for supporters to send immediately by following the "Take Action" option.
