Badger State News!
« on: November 09, 2007, 06:35:31 pm »
Long time friend of the Wisconsin Off-Highway Vehicle Association (WOHVA) and State Assembly Representative for the Wisconsin 36th Assembly District, Representative Jeff Mursau has sent LRB 3235/1 out for Co-sponsorship.

This Bill will add two (2) seats to the Wisconsin Governorís State Trails Council (STC) and would require that four (4) seats on the STC be specifically assigned to the four major motorized recreation groups (ATVís, snowmobiles, 4WDís and motorcycles).

If youíre a Badger State OHV enthusiast, it is important to contact your State Senator and State Assembly Representative to ask him/her to Co-sponsor and support this very important legislation.

LRB 3235/1 (An Act to renumber and amend 15.347 (16); and to create 15.347 (16) (a) to (d) of the statutes; relating to: membership on the State Trails Council) was introduced by Representatives Mursau, Montgomery, Kleefisch, LeMahieu and Townsend on November 29th, 2007. The Bill is being cosponsored by Senators Breske, Grothman and Lazich.

It was assigned a bill number (AB 600), read for the first time and then referred to the Committee on Rural Economic Development.

Attached is the Agenda for the January STC meeting, it is a teleconference but listeners need to meet in Madison to listen in.

On January 7th, 2008, the Wisconsin Governor's State Trails Council (STC) met in Madison, Wisconsin and via conference call from Madison.  John Schnorr, Executive Director, Wisconsin Off-Highway Vehicle Association (WOHVA) and Alex Bub, President, Wisconsin Off-Highway Motorcycle Association (WOHMA) were invited to address the Council and express our rationale for supporting AB600.

Alex & John were allowed 5 minutes each to express their respective positions and that of their organizations.  This was followed by approximately 30 minutes of questioning from the STC.  WOHVA & WOHMA have  partnered in support of this and other OHV access projects here in the Badger State.
