PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Arizona Congressman Paul A. Gosar has earned the AMA Hero Award, presented by the American Motorcyclist Association for his support of motorcyclists' rights and issues of importance to motorcycling.

The award was presented today at the Washington, D.C., office of Rep. Gosar.

Gosar, a Republican from Prescott, Ariz., was the only member of the 114th Congress to achieve a 100 percent score on motorcycling issues, including co-sponsorships for key bills and a vote.

“Rep. Gosar demonstrated an interest in and support for the issues that most directly affect the motorcycling community, and we take great pleasure in honoring him for his efforts,” said Wayne Allard, AMA vice president for government relations. “The AMA appreciates federal legislators who support America’s motorcyclists and the freedom to ride.”

First elected in 2010, Gosar is serving his fourth term in Congress representing Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District.
