The Recreational Trails Program (RTP), which funds thousands of miles of motorized trails, is in jeopardy and is poised to be eliminated.
Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman Barbara Boxer has proposed legislation that will threaten the existence of RTP and has already passed it out of committee. The Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) says that it is imperative that the industry ensures that Boxer and other members of the Environment and Public Works Committee understand the importance of RTP. ARRA is encouraging members of the industry to urge the committee to protect dedicated funding for the RTP in a manager’s amendment before the bill moves forward, noting that this money comes from motorized recreation and pays for itself.
