House Vote to Restore OHV Access in NC

Dear Trail Voter,

For several months, TPAC has highlighted a number of House bills that address OHV access to Forest Service lands and/or address overzealous EPA regulations that will restrict motorized activities on public roads and trails. Many of those proposals are being blocked in the U.S. Senate by Harry Reid (D-NV).

This week, the House is expected to vote on Jeff Denham's H.R. 2578 - the Conservation and Economic Growth Act. While Denham's (R-Turlock) bipartisan legislative package deals mostly with water storage issues, it also contains H.R. 4094 (Jones , R- NC) that overrides an OHV closure order by the National Park Service and restores OHV access to Cape Hatteras in North Carolina.

The Preserving Access to Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area Act would protect jobs and small businesses by restoring OHV access to that Park Service Unit.

For the first time in national politics we have House members who are aggressively championing legislation that challenges the overzealous trail closure agenda of many federal agencies. This fact only lends credence to TPAC's goal this election cycle of helping to vote in pro-trail senate candidates who will then vote to replace the senate's "Stall Chief" (Harry Reid) with a majority leader who will allow votes and/or oversight hearings on public land access issues.

TPAC really needs your fiscal support now as we have key races (and some new ones) that need our continued support. To help TPAC stay in the game, please make a generous donation today:

Donate $50, $100, $200, $500, $1000, or $5000 today.

Thanks in advance for your continued support!

It passed the House but will most likely get stalled in the Senate and the Obama Admin. has promised to kill it. How about a donation to TPAC to help us flip the senate?
