Co-Sponsors needed for #LRB-2295/P1

(ABATE of Wisconsin’s Autocycle Bill)


CALL or EMAIL NOW!CALL TO ACTION: Representatives Jacque and Edming along with Senator Testin are circulating bill draft #LRB-2295/P1, relating to the registration and operation of vehicles defined as autocycles. This bill will properly define a motorcycle and will remove the M endorsement requirement currently needed to operate a vehicle with a steering wheel, gas and brake pedals.

We are trying to introduce legislation to clarify autocycles so that Wisconsin can be in a better position to address future technologies and the impact these vehicles will have on state roads. Wisconsin will also be poised to realize the following benefits by adopting a separate classification for autocycles:

  • Increase the customer base to operate these vehicles by lifting the Motorcycle endorsement requirement
  • Expanding the pool of customers to help Wisconsin manufacturers that support the construction of these
  • Properly understand the impact this type of vehicle has on Wisconsin Roads
  • Eliminating confusion on how to follow the law when operating autocycles

ABATE of Wisconsin is asking you to contact (call or email) your Legislators in the State Assembly and State Senate and ask them to sign on to this important piece of legislation (#LRB-2295/P1.) For more information on who your legislators are please go to and find the “who are my legislators” section on the home page.

The deadline to sign on is December 1, 2017 so timing is crucial. Your elected officials will need to hear from you to keep this moving. This bill draft will not get a bill number or assigned to a committee without enough legislators signed on.
