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.
