VERMONT - VT State Lands Connector Trails in Jeopardy - Public Comments Needed!

Dear BRC members, supporters and action alert subscribers,

Frank Stanley, Government Affairs person over at the Vermont ATV Sportsman's Association (VASA), just forwarded us their Action Alert on an important issue that needs IMMEDIATE ACTION.

I've pasted their alert below, so please take a minute to read it over and take action. Then pass this important alert on to your friends and family, and ask them take action as well.

VERMONT ATV SPORTSMAN'S ASSOCIATION ALERT!!

TAKE A MINUTE AND TELL THE VERMONT AGENCY OF NATURAL RESOURCES NOT TO RESCIND THE CURRENT ATV RULE AND TO GIVE RESPONSIBLE ATV RIDERS ACCESS TO STATE LAND CONNECTOR TRAILS!!

In 2009, then Governor Jim Douglas finally established a rule that set up a three-trail pilot project to test whether members of the Vermont ATV Sportsman's Association could successfully ride and manage ATV state lands connector trails. The Vermont ATV Sportsman's Association (VASA) and VASA's  21 local clubs had worked long and hard to prove that ATV riders are worthy of state lands access, and it looked like the public had finally accepted ATV riders as deserving of at least a trial period of state lands trails use.

Now, newly elected, Governor Peter Shumlin is proposing to repeal the Douglas ATV rule.  Please take a minute to tell the Shumlin Administration and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, that ATV riders WANT AND DESERVE state lands access.

SIGN THE FORM LETTER.  (Deadline is May 3rd 2011)

Click this link: www.vtvasa.org/Submit-Comment.php and submit the Form Letter as your Written Public Comment.

OR SEND YOUR OWN PERSONAL COMMENTS

If you choose to write your own comments they should be sent to Jon Groveman at the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources. atvrule@state.vt.us

PLEASE SEND FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO OTHERS WHO SUPPORT MANAGED ATV RIDING OPPORTUNITIES.

Thank you for your support.
