Tort and regulatory reform as it relates to motorized recreation on public lands is a foundational tenet here at TPAC. In 2014, OHVers need to help elect federal legislators who will champion such reforms.

On August 1, 2013, Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) and Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) introduced bipartisan legislation called the Open Book on Equal Access to Justice Act (H.R. 2919). This bill will reinstate the tracking and reporting requirements of payments made under the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA).

There are many examples throughout the country where anti-OHV law-firms (such as the Center for Biological Diversity) file suits to ban or restrict motorized recreation on federal lands. These foundation-backed legal groups then ask OHV recreationists and other taxpayers to help subsidize their attorney fees. Yes, these groups file to close trails and then ask us to pay them. That needs to change!

TPAC will be watching this legislation as it moves through the House. TPAC believes that under the current Senate leadership, such pro-trail reform measures will face an uphill battle in that legislative body. Electing a pro-trail majority to the U.S. Senate in 2014 is critically important to the motorized recreation community. With your help and votes, TPAC believes that obstructionist paradigm can be changed.

Donate $10, $25, $50, $100, $200, $500 - $5,000 dollars to help TPAC support pro-trail reform candidates in the 2014 midterm election cycle.


Thanks for your continued support!
