Nebraska lawmaker wants to repeal a state law that requires motorcyclists to wear helmets.
Sen. Dave Bloomfield of Hoskins presented his measure this week to the Legislature's Transportation and Telecommunications Committee.
The bill would lift the requirement for motorcyclist operators and passengers who are at least 21 years old. Those who are younger than 21 would still have to wear helmets, and all motorcyclists would still have to wear eye protection.
The bill would also apply to moped operators.
