November 6, our future will be decided one way or the other

Dear Trail Voter,

There is a reason why various OHV leaders, enthusiasts, and business owners have endorsed TPAC's effort to elect a pro-trail majority to the U.S. Senate and retain the pro-trail majority in the House of Representatives. They want to continue to enjoy motorized recreation on public and private lands.

One long-time political operative in Washington D.C. recently said... "TPAC is a trail-blazer because it is tapping into something powerful by giving the OHV community teeth."

November 6, our future will be decided one way or the other. If you want to change the laws, rules, and regulations that govern motorized recreation on public and private lands --- we must have a net gain of 4 pro-trail senators (3 if Romney/Ryan win) to change the closure paradigm in D.C.

If you don't think regulators are out-of-control... just remember the CPSC "Ban" on youth-sized OHVs. Also, Mt. Hood National Forest closed 2,300 miles of OHV routes in a single decision. Then we have ongoing issues such as excessive OHV "cost recovery" fees (up to $50K for a single enduro) for permitted events. Federal regulators are now looking at trail closures based on microscopic organisms instead of traditional large "indicator" species such as the Northern Spotted Owl. It won't stop unless WE help stop them.

Our trail majority (if we elect them) have shown they are ready to use their budget, legislative, and oversight authority to rein in unelected federal regulators.

TPAC will continue to send donations to additional key targeted senate races that could help us reach our magic number on Nov. 6 depending on the additional support from you. TPAC is also looking at one or two more key targeted House races to support.

Donate $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 up to $5,000 dollars to STOP the assault on family oriented OHV recreation and the vehicles we use.

The President and Senate races are extremely important this year. WI, MT, IN, MO, VA, AZ and MI in particular.  This may be the most important election of our life time.
