Stop Motorcycle Checkpoint Funding Act
Prohibits the Secretary of Transportation from providing grants or funds to a state, county, town, or township, Indian tribe, municipal, or other local government for use in any program to check helmet usage or create checkpoints for a motorcycle driver or passenger.
Repeals the authority of the Secretary to make grants to states that have a law which makes it unlawful for any individual on an operating motorcycle to be without a motorcycle helmet.
Revises grant eligibility requirements to eliminate the requirement that states achieve a certain rate of compliance with such law.
