      Should a helmet be required?

      Legislation that would make motorcycle helmets an option is now on Governor Snyder's desk.

      The State Senate voted in favor of the repeal, by a 24-14 vote. The legislation would allow riders 21 or older to go without helmets if they meet certain insurance and experience conditions.

      Governor Snyder has said he only wants to tackle the motorcycle helmet law in the context of broader auto insurance reform. But proposals for more sweeping reforms appear stalled in the Legislature.

      The Legislature has passed bills to repeal the state's mandatory motorcycle helmet law previously, but the bills were vetoed twice by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
