Federal officials are trying to talk Michigan political leaders out of repealing the state's motorcycle helmet law. Members of the National Transportation Safety Board are in Lansing today to meet with Governor Snyder's administration.

"After Florida repealed their helmet law, there were 81% more fatalities and 80% more closed head injuries."
