"Oppose, oppose, oppose. I think a person wisely should wear a helmet, but totalitarian mandates are un-American. Never will I vote for the mandate. Education is the key. My position on this has not wavered for 24 years."

Comments:
Sen. Quirmbach phoned me to inform he would not be answering our survey because of close associations with people in the Brain Injury Association and felt coming out opposed to helmet laws was not in his best interest. He voted with us on our ROW - Driver Ed legislation.  His opposition opposes a helmet mandate and gets ABATEPAC support.

Comments:
"I do not own or drive a motorcycle, so on this issue I defer judgment to those who do. I am persuaded by the majority of motorcyclists who tell me mandated helmet requirements are bad public policy.  I see helmet usage as a matter of choice.  Therefore I oppose helmet mandate legislation."

"I do not believe that mandates are the way to solve all issues. Helmet usage is a choice. I strongly urge usage, but do not believe it is an issue to mandate. It is for the people to decide to wear a helmet."

Comments:
Sen. Keith Kreiman SD-47 incumbent (Bloomfield, Davis county), called today to answer the survey.  We joked a little about how long it was (one question) and then Keith told me a wonderful story.  He told me he opposes a helmet law, but that was not always his position.  He asked if I remembered the helmet fight back in '93 (boy do I) and after watching us rally to defend our beliefs he changed his position and now uses ABATE of Iowa as a prime example of democracy in action.  Real grassroots politics.  He apologized for being late with his answer, and told me that ABATE can count on him for any help we might need.
