Exclamation 3 Bills coming to congress

A USA today article concerning off roading and an ex-WF member/moderator is interviewed as well:

"If those proposals become law, motorized vehicles would be barred from lands in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Always has amazed how the sierra club and trout unlimited two groups who you think would be in favor of access to lands.. always seem involved in closing them off to everyone.

It sucks, but the .gov owns most of the west. You need to come out east if you want to have a say over what your land gets used for..

The Sierra Club wants people on foot only! They don't even like horses or pack animals. I've been chastised by those idiots in the Desolation wilderness area cause my horse crapped on the trail and I'm carrying a sidearm.

Utah will never agree to this. I am sure they have a TON of revenue from wheelers. Furthermore, I've been to Moab a number of times, including the town. If they outlaw enough stuff, the town will go bust.

Reading the article I also see an interesting fact...NJ started this, so hopefully others will follow...

It seems that if a vehicle (ATVs in this case) is sold (not street legal in any state) in a state, the state MUST provide a place for them to be used, otherwise, it is a paperweight, and cannot be legally used anywhere.

like buying a pocket bike in MI, its too fast to be considered a "toy" too small to be a "scooter" so its not allowed on either sidewalk or street. Legally you can't drive them unless you just so happened to have a track on private property.
**at least thats what the cop told me after a brisk chase

In Illinois (as usually ) there is no place to wheel (legally) at all unless you own a sh..t load of land. I have to drive over 2 hours to the closest off-road park in Indiana to legitimately have some fun.

In any case, does anyone know what's happened with the bill anyways?

Don't they realize how seriously that most Jeepers take Tread Lightly?

No they don't because they see you tube videos of the 10%(+/-) of people who don't even know what tread lightly is, and put us all in the same category.
