BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

UPDATE ON CHILDREN'S OHV BAN:
BUREAUCRATS REFUSE TO LISTEN - INCLUDE CHILDREN'S SNOWMOBILES IN BAN
Despite calls for Congressional hearings (http://www.sharetrails.org/alerts/?alert=951) the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is refusing to lift the ban on children's off highway vehicles.

CPSC Commissioners voted late last week on procedures for determining exclusions. Based on that vote, BRC is not optimistic that the exclusion for youth model ATVs and dirt bikes will be granted anytime soon. Indeed, the bureaucrats at the CPSC have emphasized that their ban includes children's snowmobiles!

If you have already sent a letter to Congress and the CPSC, we want to thank you. Thanks to your many letters, phone calls, protests, and emails, the media has been reporting the obvious - that kids don't eat their ATVs and motorcycles!
The BlueRibbon Coalition is asking its members to redouble their efforts to fight the ban on youth OHVs. We are asking that folks follow up with another letter or email. We are also asking our members to forward this information to their friends and family.

The potential losses for the industry and local dealers are massive - up to $1 billion in retail economic value annually.
BRC asks you to join the efforts of the Western Caucus, Congressman Mike Simpson, Congressman Duncan Hunter, State Senator Tom Self, MIC/SVIA, and others to "encourage" the CPSC to do the right thing and grant existing petitions for a stay.

BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

UPDATE: Idaho House Votes To Take OHV Gas Tax Fund From IDPR

Dear Action Alert Subscribers,

Yesterday the Idaho House voted to take OHV Gas Tax Fund money from Idaho Parks and Recreation (IDPR). The vote was 46-18. To see who supported this bill and complete information, go to http://www.legislature.idaho.gov//legislation/2009/H0376.htm.

The bill now goes to the Senate. This is our last chance to make our voices heard.

YOU MUST ACT NOW!!

Call or email your State Senator and the Governor's office today, right now! If you wait, it may be too late. Below is a list of all the State Senators; find yours and please contact them immediately.

Call and leave a message at (208) 332-1000 or (800) 626-0471. Leave your name and to whom the message is to be delivered. Make your message simple and polite. "The recreation community depends upon the OHV gas tax that goes to IDPR. Please leave it alone. There is no other appropriate source of funding. Thank you" or whatever else you might wish to say.

Please, spread the word and ask everyone you know to make some calls or send some emails.

Thanks for your immediate attention,

Ric Foster
Public Lands Department Manager
