ACTION NEEDED: All snowmobilers are being asked to contact your Federal representatives and ask them to cosponsor HR 5797, the Recreational Trails (RTP) Full Funding Act. Also contact members of the Senate and ask for support of S. 1527. RTP aids all trail activities nationwide through the use of non-highway recreational fuel taxes. Last year Congress gave the marching orders to the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop an estimate of fuel tax generated by non-highway users and included RTP in the Senate’s next-gen surface transportation program.
Federal representatives and senators need to hear from you.
Click below for more information and draft letters.
Note: RTP gas tax monies are used to buy equipment such as groomers, drags etc. The “Buy American” provision is also being researched by the United Snowmobile Alliance (USA). PSSA is a member.
