BRC - Working for recreation

Search 4x4Wire for more on OHV recreation and 4x4 Tech

The recreating community needs to weigh in heavily on this important process, and we are here to help. BRC will have a letter generator to help you comment. Watch for an alert this week. Get the background on the issue at:

Recreational Trails Program (RTP): Good News! The RTP program made it through the latest round of budget discussions for 2011--the product of a job well done by a lot of groups working together at the national level. As Congress now turns its attention to Budget 2012, RTP will still face a lot of competition for the funding that supports the program. Congressional champions of the Recreational Trails Program are currently passing a "Dear Colleague" letter through Congress to drum up support for this critical trail funding program. We need you to contact representatives and encourage them to support RTP and sign on to this "Dear Colleague" letter. See our alert on this issue at: The deadline for congressional representative to sign on has only been extended to May 5, so time is still short... Please call your representative today.

Salazar's Big Wilderness: More good news! During the budget wrangling for 2011, Congress did the right thing in defunding Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's Wild Lands policy for 2011. Recreationists are doing the dance of joy. See our update at: For more background on the issue, visit our dedicated webpage at: .
