Washington, DC- Congressman Steve King released the following statement after receiving the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Award. The AMA is a non-profit association that serves as the “premier advocate” of the motorcycling community. This award is given to Members of Congress who have supported the AMA and its 221,000 members’ “most important causes” of both on-and-off highway motorcyclists.
“I am thankful for this Supporter Award from the members of the AMA,” said King. “The AMA is doing a great job at promoting and protecting the future of motorcycling and securing young riders can continue to enjoy this recreational pastime. I want the members of the AMA to know that they will have my support for years to come.”
“Thanks to the outstanding efforts of Representative King during the 112th Congress, and the efforts of others, motorcyclists continue to enjoy a variety of freedoms related to their sport and pastime that were under attack,” said Wayne Allard, AMA vice president for government relations and a former U.S. senator and U.S. representative from Colorado.
