Congress to Vote on H.R. 1925 America's Red Rock Wilderness Act This Thursday!

Moab Might Be Gone Forever!

Posted Today 01:35 PM by 4WOR Web Editor

Filed under: Miscellaneous, Jason Gonderman



The Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands of the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources has scheduled a hearing on October 1 to consider H.R. 1925, America's Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009.

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.


However, not a single Representative from Utah is supporting H.R.1925.

Specifically, H.R. 1925 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 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.

It's VERY VERY SIMPLE! Just click here...

... and you will be taken to the AMA's (American Motorcycle
Association) website. Enter your zip code and a letter will be sent to your representative urging them to vote NO on this bill.

Do it NOW! please

P.S. I copied this from another website (t4r.org) i saw it and thought many defender owners love MOAB and wouldnt want to see it closed. Its not spam!

I'm going to be 17 different kind of pissed off if this goes through. I just sent my congresswoman an email to vote against, and sent this to my friends that would care!

I am so sick of this (insert cursing tirade fo your choice here) crap!
I filled out the form and am spreading the word but I am really mad about the constant bombardment of bad news concerning OHV use on public lands.

Bump and Done..

Leaving for Moab in about 30 hrs... Been going there yearly for 15 years. The land use rules are a breath of fresh air compared to my home state, it would be a very sad day to see access lost. I know residents have mixed emotions regarding tourists but it is a major industry to the region. Buckon is right, stand up now, it wasn't our generation that earned the liberties we are giving away. What kind of legacy are we giving our next generations?

Have a great trip...we'll expect the obligatory photos when you're back.

Legacy? You know that the pro-closure folks will argue that same point. Somehow We need to figure out a way to limit the knuckleheaded "users". If folks would actually use and shepard the land, I don't even think we'd be having these discussions.

I just watched a good share of the streaming video from the House committee "hearing".

If that wasn't the most obviously hand picked, one sided, illogical group of lemmings, I don't know what is.

If you folks are planning on wheeling in Utah or anywhere else in the west in the future, you'd be well advised to pay attention to what's going on in your "government".
