Keep Congress from closing more than 9 million acres in Utah
Contact your Representative to Oppose H.R. 1925!


“The Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands of the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources held a hearing (http://resourcescommittee.house.gov/index.php?option=com_jcalpro&Itemid=27&extmode=view&extid=292) on October 1 to consider H.R. 1925, (http://capwiz.com/amacycle/issues/bills/?bill=13274916) America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009. To read AMA’s press release on the hearing, click here: http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com/news/story.asp?id=1375. 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. To read his press release on H.R. 1925, click here: http://www.house.gov/list/press/ny22_hinchey/morenews/091709RedRocksHearing.html

However, not a single Representative from Utah is supporting H.R. 1925. To see the Utah delegation and Ranking Member Doc Hastings speak out against H.R. 1925, click here: http://republicans.resourcescommittee.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=147628

Specifically, H.R. 1925 (http://capwiz.com/amacycle/issues/bills/?bill=13274916) 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 over 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.”

  1. How the hell can they do that? They have no clue as to the damage they are doing, sitting behind a desk. They never see the light of day, let alone do anything that might be considered fun.

  2. I hope you’re kidding. Don’t they have their sticky fingers in enough pies without touching ours? That just makes me really mad. They’re probably just jealous!

  3. Are you serious? What the heck do they care? That really makes me mad. I’ve never contacted my legislator before but now might be a good time to start!

  4. Don’t them dirty dogs have other pies they can stick their fingers in? When I look at the state of the economy, I think they could find other things to do with their time.
