A Congressional hearing on a proposed law that could end the sales ban on youth-model dirtbikes and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) was conducted on Thursday, April 29, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reported today.

The hearing on the proposed bill, the "Consumer Product Safety Enhancement Act" (CPSEA), was held by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection.

We are encouraged that Congress seems to be taking the concerns of AMA members and the motorcycling community seriously," said Ed Moreland, AMA vice president for government relations. "We are seeking answers to questions that we raised earlier in the week about language in the bill, but we remain cautiously optimistic that our concerns will be addressed."

The AMA identified its concerns in an April 28 letter addressed to Subcommittee Chairman Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) and Ranking Member Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.). Details can be found at

The AMA will continue to monitor this developing story and will provide updates when additional information becomes available.
