Marte’s LO report: Please keep calling
your reps on all of the issues ABATE supports. Marte wanted us to be aware of HB-4643 a bill that will fine picketers $1000
each. This is a violation of our First Amendment rights and the right to assemble. It could also prohibit our yearly Freedom
Rally at the capitol, our Awareness Rides and it could also prevent us from picketing businesses that discriminate against
bikers. So please read up on this and make those calls.
Thank you to Herb Rials for guest speaking at our meeting and filling
us in on all that is going on at the Capitol and with the Board of Directors.
