    MOAB Land CLosure

    First off I have never been to MOAB, but have tons of friends that have made the trek out west. Second, the people that start closing down trails out there are the same ones trying to close down our beaches from motorized vehicles so we have to show them we care!

    Congress to Vote on H.R. 1925 America's Red Rock Wilderness Act This Thursday!

    Moab Might Be Gone Forever!

    Posted Today 01:35 PM by 4WOR Web Editor

    Filed under: Miscellaneous, Jason Gonderman



    The Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands of the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources has scheduled a hearing on October 1 to consider H.R. 1925, America's Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009.

    This legislation -- which will ban off-highway vehicle (OHV) access to public lands to those who live and recreate in
    Utah -- was introduced by New York Representative Maurice Hinchey.


    However, not a single Representative from Utah is supporting H.R.1925.

    Specifically, H.R. 1925 would designate more than nine million more acres as federally protected "Wilderness," and directly affect the Moab, San Rafael Swell and Chimney Rock areas (to name a few) in Utah.

    These popular OHV areas represent some of the most important remaining OHV recreation areas in Utah, and are some of the most popular with responsible OHV riders. The proposed Wilderness designation would also make the land off limits to ATV riders, mountain bikers and horseback
    riders.

    Coming on the heels of the recently enacted Omnibus Public Land Management Act, which closed 2 million acres of public lands, this vast Wilderness bill will take away additional recreation opportunities currently enjoyed by local residents and visitors alike.

    The AMA needs your help now to stop H.R. 1925. The fastest way to reach your U.S. Representative is to call them. You can find contact information for your elected officials by entering your zip code on AmericanMotorcyclist.com, clicking on "Rights," then "Issues and Legislation." Additionally, a prewritten e-mail is available for you to send to your Representative immediately by following the "Take
    Action" option and entering your information.

    Please contact your Representative right away and urge them to oppose H.R. 1925.

    It's VERY VERY SIMPLE! Just click on the link below:

    ... and you will be taken to the AMA's (American Motorcycle
    Association) website. Enter your zip code and a letter will be sent to your representative urging them to vote NO on this bill.

    Do it NOW! please! It starts with US, the people, ....the government is saposed to be "for the people by the people".....not gov't control over the people!

    Everybody help this Bill Fail!!!

    I think this hearing already took place
