You are assuming the federal government moves quickly??? 10,000 PAX in CY2013 means FAA $$ in FY 2015 which starts Oct 1...but budgets don;t get approved that early and haven't for years (can you say "continuing resolution"?).

There was an IL helmet law (either in place or proposed, I don't recall) back in the early 80s or late 70s. It was repealed. Federal funding for highways, etc, are dependent on certain laws being in place. The seat belt law is one of those. That happened WAY back either under Reagan or Bush 1. So if you'd really like, I'm sure the federal government could also mandate helmet laws....
