    That may be so, but as a Pennsylvania resident who got his class M license over a decade ago through the PAMSP BRC class, has taken the ARC every few years afterwards (they're free after all), and took the TCT curriculum ARC last year. The TCT course was head and shoulders above the previous offerings.

    Folks..though our MSP has currently disappeared we are still funding the PaMSP with our fees from m/c endorsements, m/c registrations and m/c learning permits.. I hope the Pa. legislatures don’t get it in their minds to raid this funding..though as I recall it was written into the original m/c safety sponsored bill that would have prevented this raiding for other underfunded priorities ...

    I was written in the legislation passed in the mid 1980's. Legislators would LOVE to grab those Rider training funds and publicaly bleat; "See, we balanced the budget this year, so vote for us".

    See page 621 (aka E41-3) of this PDF. It is Pennsylvania's 2020-21 Governor's Executive Budget (proposal) document.

    Under Homeland Security - Real ID is the Motorcycle Safety Education Restricted Fund. Both are under the umbrella of the Motor License Fund.

    For said Restricted Fund:
    $3.046M Actual (2018-19)
    $5M Available (2019-20)
    $5M Budget (2020-21).

    "Available" is the current fiscal year, which ends on 30th June 2020.

    Restricted Funds are just that: those with defined and limited collection and expenditure requirements.
    They may only be spent for very limited purposes related to the state appropriation. This designation should serve to protect the MSF funds that accrue but remain unspent until the State resumes rider training activities through relevant contract activity, etc.

    So who’s left to bring back rider training here in Pa....MSF? They are the same individuals,trainers, management that ran it previously just the ‘same sheep in different clothing’..ie, Bobbie Carlson was involved with the Pa. program via MSF, Cape Fox.. and Lee Park’s ‘Total Control‘ .. Love to see new thinking with different people..not the same mantra with a different spin...

    Tried to contact ABATE of Pa. as they seem to have the pulse of what’s happening here in Pa. concerning mototorcycle legislation, etc....however no word back from them..
