ABATE (Lobby Day)

CALL TO ACTION
ABATE of Wisconsin Lobby Day 2008- Tuesday March 4th
ABATE of Wisconsin will be hosting a lobby day for all bikers at the State Capitol in Madison. We will be assembling between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at the Inn on the Park prior to walking across the street to meet with our legislators in the Capitol.

Information and hand-outs for legislators will be available at our meeting area.

The legislative issues of current concern to ABATE of WI are:
-NTSB safety recommendations and their lobbying efforts in Wisconsin
-Enhancement of the rules concerning right of way violations defined in Wisconsin Act 466
-Health Care Benefits Denial; while we have worked on lobbying for a HIPAA correction at the federal level, ABATE of WI now believes it’s time to introduce this in our state.

Bus routes have been planned to promote attendance at this event. Check out the routes in our current ABATE of WI newsletter or contact your ABATE regional representative. While we are not charging participants for the bus ride, donations will be accepted to help cover the cost.”

No experience necessary. Someone will be available to join you when meeting your legislators. Appointments are your responsibility. Please check with your ABATE regional rep (Matt “Mattman” Wyatt 608-516-8946) to see if an appointment has already been made with your legislator. To find out who your legislators are, please visit our website at http://www.abatewis.org and click on the resources link.

If you are driving into Madison in a private vehicle we have arranged parking and a shuttle service to and from the Inn on the Park every half hour between 8:30 am and 5 pm. You are welcome to park your vehicle at the CC Riders Clubhouse and ride our shuttle to prevent the need to find a place to park downtown. To find the CC Riders Clubhouse where ever you are coming from end up on East Washington by the East Towne Mall. Go to the corner of East Washington and Lien Road (Wendy's on the corner) turn east on Lien Road and go one block to Parkside Drive, Turn right and go to the end of the block. The clubhouse is on the left.
