UFWDA - Immediate Action Needed
United Four Wheel Drive Associations
Lame Duck Sessions

For Immediate Release

Chris Saunders
Director of Environmental Affairs

Currently, the House and Senate are idle due to the November elections. On November 15th, the “Lame Duck” sessions will begin.

A “Lame Duck” session of Congress occurs whenever Congress meets after its successor is elected, but before the successor’s term begins. In current practice, any meetings of Congress after Election Day, but before the following January 3rd, is a “Lame Duck” session.

UFWDA is concerned the Wilderness Society will push legislators for pleas to pass wilderness legislation during the Lame Duck sessions. This is considered to be one of the most immediate threats to our recreation on public lands.

UFWDA is asking you to help by contacting your Congressman and asking for their commitment to oppose any public land omnibus bill that is submitted during the Lame Duck sessions.

With these sessions beginning on November 15th, your immediate response is required. We suggest that you contact your local Congressman by phone or email. You can also choose to send a written letter to your Congressman, which can be just as effective.

For Congressional Contact Information, you can visit: Contact Information | UFWDA

If you choose to send a written letter, tips and sample letters are available here: Write Your Congressman | UFWDA

Please take the time to make your voice heard and considered in Washington.
