H.R. 1925 Bill trying to close MOAB

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!

Slow is not necissarily a bad thing.  I built my first XJ way to fast, and didn't know what I should get.  Had to since rebuild it.  Building it slow, by the time you get the money to buy the parts you know EXACTLY what you want.  One of the other bonuses, make a list of the stuff that you want.  When stuff comes up for sale and it is on your list buy it.  You will save a TON of money on used stuff.  Buy stuff as it comes to you.

being the politically active type, my reaction can be expected.

edit: all done.  I contacted the rep.  Hopefully he represents me this time, unlike when they rammed that bill though in the "Armageddon is inevitable unless we pass this 'stimulus' package!!!1" couple weeks several months ago.

Thus far, I have not been stimulated in any way that relates to government activity.confuse That's beside the point, and may be suitable fodder for discussion in another thread.
