Dear Representative [Last Name]:

As one of your constituents, I am writing you to ask you to support LC 1994, concerning electric bike rebates in Oregon.

This legislation would allow lower income earners to afford higher quality electric bicycles meant to be worked on and used for years even decades, instead of low-quality internet e-bikes that are scrapped once they fail after a year of service. This would also support local businesses and economies, by requiring purchasers to buy from one of Oregon’s many local bike shops. Which would in turn create more relationships with local bike riders and their local shops, creating ongoing investments in those shops by means of service work. Instead of supporting manufacturing jobs overseas.
