The Senate bill will prevent the Secretary of Transportation from issuing grants intended to support the creation of “checkpoints for an operator of a motorcycle or a passenger on a motorcycle.”

Currently, only New Hampshire, Illinois, California, Missouri and Virginia have restrictions on motorcycle only checkpoints. This has allowed other states to employ this practice during rallies and other large motorcycle events, such as Rolling Thunder in Washington, D.C. and the Daytona Bike Week in Daytona, Fla.

This will be the Senate version of H.R. 1861, the Stop Motorcycle Checkpoint Funding Act.
