do something now............
Contact Environment and Public Works Committee Members:
Urge Them to Act!
 
The Recreational Trails Program (RTP), arguably the most important government program ever created to benefit motorized recreation (as well as non-motorized recreation) faces a big hurdle in transportation reauthorization legislation! As you know the RTP funds the development and maintenance of thousands of miles of motorized trails, but without action the RTP may be eliminated.
 
Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman Barbara Boxer has proposed legislation that will threaten the very existence of RTP and has already passed it out of Committee. It is imperative that we make sure that Chairman Boxer and the other Members of the Environment and Public Works Committee understand how important RTP is to us and to urge them to protect dedicated funding for the RTP in a manager's amendment before the bill moves forward.


 

Quote
NH?s Delegation is not listed as members of the committee that would need to make a change to put dedicated funding back into the proposed Highway Bill for RTP; however they should be aware of its impact to NH.

In this day and age the public supports is for repairing the nation?s infrastructure and not use highway funds for other uses; however the RTP is similar to NH?s Grant In Aid program in that is it funds from gas tax on motorized vehicles for their off-highway use. It is not funds from on-road use.

This program has helped fund $1,000,000 of trail grant projects in NH annually for many years and it is the only source of grant funds for many of your organizations. Its loss would be heavily felt in NH. The Senate E & PW Committee has removed its dedicated funding status and sent the bill to the Senate Finance Committee. Once the bill gets rolling the opportunity to save RTP will likely be gone. If it of value to you and your organizations please contact our Congressional Delegation about it.
 
Chris Gamache, Chief
 NH Bureau of Trails
 DRED-Divison of Parks & Recreation
 PO Box 1856
 Concord, NH 03302-1856

This is a federal program not just for NH
