Look who sent me an email today?
Dear Mr. Machado:
Thank you for contacting me about protecting our environment. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this important matter.
As a member of the United States Senate, I will work to enact effective policies—based on sound scientific and economic principles—that protect our air, water, wildlife, and bountiful open spaces. The Senate will consider a variety of priorities during the 110th Congress, and it is important that I remain abreast of issues affecting Texans.
I appreciate having the opportunity to represent the interests of Texans in the United States Senate. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.

Another Event in trouble.
My Friends...Yet another wheeling event is threatened because of ridiculous Government Legislation...
I have the inside track on something Pearse at Jeep Jamboree USA is working on to help us organize fight infringements like this; I'll send you more INFO. soon...
But for now we have to come together and do something!
Please take a look at this and act on it... And please be sure to pass it on to anyone you know who will help us take action!
"Four Wheeling Friends:
Senator Bingaman (D-NM) has introduced a huge omnibus lands bill that tries to slip in the Prehistoric Trackways National Monument. This bill is S.3213. You can look at it at Thomas.gov: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:S3213: Title II Subtitle B contains the trackway national monument. This omnibus bill also contains the National Landscape Conservation System bill. If you think the Wilderness Act has been misused and adulterated to become a land closure weapon, the NLCS is the icing on the cake. It will most likely be used to close the rest of the BLM land to OHV and ranching use. You might say that the NCLS is in place now and has not been used as a weapon yet. That is true, right now it is just an a department of Interior administrative program. Once it is codified by Congress and becomes law, then the lawsuits can start to use it to close whatever wilderness has not been able to close.
Senate bill 3213 must be stopped NOW!!
What must you do?
1. Contact Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and ask him to not bring this bill to the Senate floor for a vote. As Majority Leader in the U.S. Senate, Reid controls what is brought to a vote. If this bill becomes controversial, the chances of it being acted on lessen.
2. Contact New Mexico Senators Bingaman and Domenici and tell them that you oppose this bill. Tell them that this proposed national monument is just an excuse to close this area to recreation and that there are no exposed trackways left. Senator Bingaman visited this area in June. Ask him if he saw any trackways or just a few tracks in a rubble pile?
3. Contact the Senator from your state and ask him or her to vote against S.3213.
4. Contact Congressman Stevan Pearce (R-NM) and ask him to do everything he can to block a similar bill in the House.
We really need your help to keep our public lands open and especially need help saving the Chile Challenge. Please take the time to write today and protect your sport from S. 3213.
For more information about the proposed trackway national monument go to: http://www.paleozoictrackways.org/index.htm - pay special attention to our alternate proposal and suggest that when you write your emails.

P.S. I will be your contact for the 2009 Chile Challenge, if we get enough help on keeping our trails open."
