"All trail-access decisions are political decisions"

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
The TPAC tactical goal is to target key races using state-of-the art real-time analysis where there is a tough election and the pro-access candidate needs some extra support to help to defeat their opponent.
TPAC is needed to counter the anti-access special interests in Washington DC who have long ago figured that contributing to closure-oriented politicians is how they will accomplish their goal of restricting OHV access on federal lands.
TPAC is ready to stand in that political breach to stop the flow of anti-access politicians into the Capital. TPAC will work hard to reverse that trend so that pro-access legislators will exist as the majority in Congress and the White House.

Trail PAC Opinion - State of Disunion

TPAC OPINION - State of DisUnion

The Trail PAC believes this country's trail-based recreation programs are in a current State of Disunion. According to information from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Obama administration has promulgated over 800 new major regulations (regulations that have a $100 million dollar or more economic impact). That compares to about 160 such regulations issued during the Bush era.

New rules or regulations (NEPA, ESA, EPA, etc.) related to OHV use on public lands continue to encourage and reward extreme environmental groups to sue land agencies if motorized events are not banned and/or if not enough trails and roads are closed during travel management planning processes.

TPAC is encouraged by House pro-trail legislation and hearings that seek to address the closure agenda of federal bureaucrats and to block the taxpayer funding of environmental lawsuits. However, an anti-trail majority in the Senate chamber is blocking those companion efforts.

TPAC believes the OHV community should work hard to change that dynamic in the Senate by supporting the campaigns of pro-trail candidates.
