How clueless can the state be?

Bike LawsFISCAL AND POLICY NOTE House Bill 140 Bicycles, Mopeds, and Motor Scooters - Minors - Protective Headgear

"State Effect: Potential significant general and federal fund savings beginning in FY 2011 for the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) to the extent the bill reduces debilitating injuries from bicycle and motor scooter accidents.
There is insufficient data at this time to estimate the number of traumatic head injuries that could be avoided and the resulting potential savings to the Medicaid program.

Ya, right. We all know fat lazy people make less demands on general and federal funds then healthy active people. And it is far more cost effective to harass cyclists off the road then to actually make the roads safer for them to ride. [/sarcasm]
