Milwaukee based Harley Davidson would be named Wisconsin’s official motorcycle under a bill that's gaining momentum in the legislature.
The measure passed a state assembly committee on a partisan 4-2 vote on Wednesday with Democrats backing it and Republicans against. It must pass there and the Senate before it heads to Governor Jim Doyle for his consideration.
Bill sponsor Leon Young says Harley has been a good company not just for Wisconsin but the entire country. Opponent Joel Kleefisch argued that the designation amounted to just a "scrap or crumb" for the company that was hurt by recent business tax increases.
