Rubicon Trail Needs YOUR Help!

On Thursday, April 23rd the California Water Quality Control Board is having a public hearing in Rancho Cordova to finalize their decision on closing the Rubicon Trail.

The National Off-Road Association - www.nora-usa.com - who are within driving distance of Sacramento to attend this important public hearing. Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts need to show the Water Board the overwhelming public support to keep the Rubicon Trail open year-round. NORA's goal is to have over (500) OHV enthusiasts present at this public hearing.

This is serious. On April 1st of this year, the United States Forest Service issued a 2-year temporary closure of the very popular Tellico OHV Area in North Carolina. Help Rubicon from turning into a Tellico type situation by showing your support on April 23rd.

Assemblyman Ted Gaines and a representative from Congressman Tom McClintock's office will be in attendance, as well as Off-Road Hall of Famer, Mark A. Smith. Local Sacramento news media will also be covering this historic event.

Please call or email Erin Lara, Member Services Director at NORA to let her know if you are able to attend as we are trying to obtain a head count. She can be reached at (530) 333-1487, ext. 1 or info@nora-usa.com. If the Rubicon Trail is closed, even temporarily this go-around, this will not only set a precedent for the permanent future of the Rubicon but also every other publicly-owned land access point throughout the United States. THIS IS CRITICAL!

Meeting Place and Time

Location - 11020 Sun Center Drive # 200; Rancho Cordova, CA 95670

Date & Time - Thursday, April 23rd @ 12:30 PM

Dear Mr. Peterson:



Thank you for taking the time to contact me about the America's Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009 (H.R. 1925). I appreciate knowing your concerns.



The America's Red Rock Wilderness Act would designate as wilderness certain federal portions of the red rock canyons of the Colorado Plateau and the Great Basin Deserts in Utah.



As you may know, I have a strong environmental voting record on both the state and federal level, and I believe that we must conserve and protect our precious natural resources and be good stewards of the environment. For these reasons, I have decided to cosponsor this legislation.



This bill was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands for review. At this point in time, the Subcommittee has not considered this legislation. Should this bill come before the full House for a vote, I will keep your thoughts in mind, especially as they relate to off-road vehicle use.



With best wishes, I am



Sincerely,
Vernon J. Ehlers
Member of Congress
