"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.

Elected Official Asks for Repeal of Anti-OHV Dust Regulations

TPAC wants to showcase the types of elected officials that we need to send to Congress in the 2014 midterm elections.

Debbie Peterson, Mayor of Grover Beach, California, has written a petition asking for a repeal of Rule 1001 because of questions raised by a number of agencies including the California Geological Survey about the scientific validity of the dust regulations.  The dust regulations placed unwarranted fiscal burdens on the OHV Park’s managing agency and the user community.  The Rule called for excessive fines, use fees, monitoring costs, and permits.

As you know, electing politicians who will champion common sense reforms of excessive regulations – that impact responsible motorized recreation - was one of the key tenets of TPAC’s effort in the 2012 elections.  It is again, a primary focus in the 2014 midterms.

TPAC will need your help in 2014 to help continue the work we started in 2012 so we can bolster the pro-trail legislators who are already there.
DONATE $20, $50, $100, $200, $500 - $5,000 TO HELP SEND PRO-TRAIL CANDIDATES TO D.C.
 Thanks for being engaged in the 2014 midterms
