"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.

The Trail PAC Endorses Tom Cotton for Senate in AR

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) works to elect federal candidates who will support legislation and policy that promotes and protects responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on public and private lands.  Today, TPAC is proud to announce its endorsement and support for Tom Cotton who is running for the U.S. Senate in Arkansas.

Congressman Cotton believes it is vitally important for the government to provide access to public lands to all Arkansans, irrespective of their mode of transport. Far too often today, the federal government is attempting to take over more private land and restrict the use of public lands in the name of “environmental protection.” Restrictions come in many varieties, but recently the most frequent attack has been through Endangered Species Act listings. The Administration is making a concerted effort to change the rules of the listing process so it is easier to list lands, thereby restricting use and providing additional motivation for individuals to sell their land to federal authorities.

Tom supports the use of federal lands by all users - hunters, fishermen, trail riders, hikers, and everyone else. He believes the proper management of federal lands is achieved when citizens are able to use the land and pass down respect for the land to the next generation, just like his father Len did with Tom, not when we block it off from any use.

Cotton joins Terri Lynn Land for Senate in Michigan and Steve Daines for Senate in Montana as our 3rd officially endorsed/supported senate race.

Trail voters need a net gain of six seats in November to change the current Senate leadership.   TPAC, along with other political observers, believes the AR senate race will play an important role in changing that Senate paradigm.

6-time Gold Medalist for the International Six Days Enduro and National Enduro Champion, Steve Hatch, says, “I applaud the actions and support the hard work of TPAC’s efforts to elect pro-trail candidates to the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. We all need to stand together and help continue to fight for our trails.”

As you know, TPAC's strategy in 2014 is to target/support up to 11 key Senate and 15 important battleground House races.  Join Steve Hatch and many others in support of TPAC’s effort to change the current leadership in the U.S. Senate and retain the pro-access House majority.   Please consider a donation of $10, $25, $100, $500, or $1,000 today.

Watch for official TPAC endorsements soon in the Colorado and Iowa senate races.

Thanks for helping get summer motorized recreation into the game.
