Senator Hood missed 113 votes, and the only lobbyists he could find were from the OEM mattress industry? Times are indeed tough. Recycled materials are made into new stuff all the time, trash is big business. I wonder if the vote would have gone the other way if the custom mattress folk had more of a say. Just speculation. Regarding insurance and riding without a helmet, don't you need insurance to ride in the first place, helmet or not? Senator Hood addressed this issue at least 7 times with proposals, are there not more pressing issues? See herehttp://www.michiganvotes.org/2011-SB-291
