Thread: Save Wheeling in Utah

  1. #1

    Default Save Wheeling in Utah - Less than 48 hours until the vote!

    Once again, those here in the midwest and the east coast are trying to close down wheeling in Utah. Remember, even if you don't plan to wheel out west, don't be fooled into thinking they won't come after MI sometime soon. The more they close, the easier it gets.
    H.R. 1925
    http://capwiz.com/amacycle/issues/al...ertid=14061961

    cosponsor against us Vernon Ehlers (R 3rd) 07/08/2009
    cosponsor against us Dale Kildee (D 5th) 04/02/2009
    cosponsor against us Gary Peters (D 9th) 06/15/2009
    cosponsor against us Sander Levin (D 12th) 04/02/2009
    cosponsor against us Carolyn Kilpatrick (D 13th) 04/02/2009
    cosponsor against us John Conyers (D 14th) 04/02/2009

    More contact info here for the reps above. The bill goes to committee on October 1st so not a lot of time. The link above has a pre-written email to make it easier.

    Rich, Thanks for reminding me about this:

    H.R. 1925 Would Eliminate Motorized and Mechanized Access to Over 9 Million Acres of Public Land in UT.

    Please click here to let Members of the House Natural Resources Committee, Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands know that you oppose H.R. 1925, "America's Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009." H.R. 1925 would designate over 9 million acres of land in Utah as Wilderness. If the bill were to become law, each of these 9 million acres would be made permanently off-limits to motorized and mechanized recreation, including off-highway motorcycles, ATVs, 4x4s, snowmobiles and mountain bikes.

    The House Parks, Forests and Public Lands Subcommittee will hold a hearing on the legislation on October 1st. As a constituent with a member on the Subcommittee it is imperative that you weigh in to protect access. Today riding areas in UT are in jeopardy tomorrow it might be your state! Use the link below to help make it clear that Wilderness bills like H.R. 1925 that designate mammoth tracks of land as wilderness without regard for current recreational opportunities and without input from the local and recreational communities are unacceptable to recreationists.

    Please use the link below to send a letter to your Member opposing H.R. 1925

    heres the message:
    We're sorry, but you cannot take action on this alert. This may be because the alert is restricted to specific states or to constituents of specific representatives, or because your address does not match a ZIP code we can properly map to your representative, or because your representative does not have a contact email address or webform.

    just a heads up.

    It worked fine for me.
    I had to change the word "riding" to "driving", but that was no biggie.
