Important News for MOAB

Postby oruna1 » Sat Sep 26, 2009 1:04 pm

I'm not sure if everyone is aware of this but please check it out!

On October 1st a subcommittee in the House of Representatives will be meeting to consider the Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009. This Act would designate much of Utah as "wilderness" and as such forever prevent you, your family, your friends.... flat out everyone, from ever wheeling there again. For example this act would prohibit wheeling in Moab.

and take a few moments to complete the form requesting your state representative oppose H.R. 1925. It is VERY EASY to do and almost completely automatic.

I sure hope it doesn't get approved. With all the other stuff going on these days I could picture this passing just to get it over with. You wouldn't even be able to mountain bike either. No mechanized transportation would be allowed. Does it ever stop?

Not if the OHV community doesn't start working together to fight it :wall:

We need to keep opposing it, but this is the 15th time the same person has introduced this bill and needless to say it has not passed before. And he picked up this torch from a senator before him.

The Sierra Club unites lots of groups of loonies under the umbrella of "conservation." With collective resources, they can influence legislators pretty significantly. Unfortunately, OHV, access groups, hunters, natural resource utilization, and "common sense" groups haven't found enough common ground to form a united front against such ridiculous arguments. If, for instance, oil companies were to realize that even though Moab doesn't have oil, and we don't wheel in ANWR, we can offer mutually beneficial resources (their money, and our signatures, local representation, and numbers) we could have a great partnership. I hope we can also eventually mobilize people that assume access is a forgone conclusion, cause they're the ones that can really tip the scales.
I finally know my calling in life! I'm an a asshole!
I feel sorry for all the soldiers and intelligence officers who over the last century have worked hard to defeat communism, only to have it elected by "choice".

They never give up and we have to make sure we don't give up either. Maybe the 16th time they will get their way. Pass the link off to as many people as you can. It can't help their cause and can only perserve ours. I love how someone from NY (my home state by the way) introduces a bill about preserving land in UTAH. I guess we have so many problems he gave up on ours. He figures he'll give UTAH some problems. It's call redistribution of problems for the common "loonie"!
