Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code.  Provides that no unit of local      
   government may enact or enforce an  ordinance  that  applies  only  to      
   motorcycles  if  the principal purpose of the ordinance is to restrict      
   access to highways that utilize federal or State funds. Preempts  home      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Further amends the Illinois Vehicle Code to provide that units of      
   local government may regulate motorcycles for safety  purposes  or  in      
   accordance with the provision dealing with the use of mufflers and the      
   prevention  of  noise.   Removes  the provision that the regulation of      
   motorcycles for the principal purpose of restricting motorcycle access      
   to specified highways is an exclusive power of the State and  provides      
   that  home  rule  units  may  not  regulate  motorcycles  in  a manner      
   inconsistent with these amendatory provisions.                              
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
        Replaces  everything.   Amends  the  Illinois  Vehicle  Code   to      
   prohibit  units  of  local  government  from  adopting ordinances that      
   require motorcycle users to wear helmets or limit motorcycle access to      
   highways.  Pre-empts home rule.  Allows units of local  government  to      
   continue  to  regulate motorcycles for purposes of traffic control and      
          HOME RULE NOTE, H-AM 2                                               
          (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)                       
          This legislation does preempt home rule authority.
