Items from our Winter Quarterly Membership Meeting yesterday in West Branch

Rate this Entry
We held our Winter Quarterly Membership Meeting yesterday in West Branch and I would to Thank All Those Who Took The Time Out Of Their Life to attend.

A couple of items from our 2010 LUC Review I would like to draw attention to are:

Legislation
GLFWDA will be bringing the failed Bills from last session to Senator Hansen for review. We will work with him to rework the Bills so that they can be introduced in a manner that will yield a more positive outcome. We are currently waiting for a return call from his scheduler as to a meeting date.

Following is a brief recap of the ‘highlights’ of those bills:
• ORV License fee increase to $30.50
• Permit trigger number be increased from 20 people to 75 VEHICLES
• Increased liability protection for maintenance workers
• Define “Other Road” as used in the definition of ORV Route per the Attorney General’s Opinion we received during the Drummond designation process
• Add clarification to when the definition of Forest Road is to be applied


Senatorial Route Ride
The GLFWDA LUC will be putting together a Route Ride on Drummond Island for a group of State Senators for 2011. Senator Hansen will assist with the invitation list. We will be looking for vehicles to chauffeur the Senators around the Island when the time comes. We are looking at August, but the date will depend on when activity levels are low in Lansing.

If you are interested in getting more involved in either one of these issues, please send an email to LandUse@glfwda.org
