Motorcycle Helmet Debate Resumes in Missouri

(AP)–A measure opponents say increases the risks to motorcyclists and would burden society with the costs of injuries from non-helmet-wearing riders is moving forward in the Missouri Legislature.
The Missouri House on Wednesday gave first-round approval to a measure that would allow people 21 and older to ride a motorcycle without a helmet.
Rep. Eric Burlison, of Springfield, says it’s a matter of personal freedom and that the government should not interfere with the choice to wear a helmet.
He says adults should be allowed to make their own decisions.
A similar measure has passed the House in previous years but has not succeeded in the Senate, where it will move after another affirmative vote in the House.
