WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT:
While the plan at issue is located in Central Utah, the radical restrictions proposed in this draft plan may set a precedent and have profound affects to EVERYONE who visit BLM lands.The BLM is updating RMP's all over the West, including popular OHV destinations in Idaho, New Mexico, Arizona, Montana, California, and Nevada. BLM field offices are watching this draft plan very closely. If not opposed successfully, it may well set a precedent for other areas undergoing planning. It is vitally important that all recreationists, and especially the OHV community, speak out against these radical restrictions.BRC's review of the draft plan and its impacts to recreation is available on their website. www.sharetrails.org/uploads/PDFs/BRC_Initial_Review.pdfFAIR WARNING:
The restrictions outlined in the plan are extreme. The misstatements, omissions and errors in the OHV management section are offensive to any fair-minded vehicle enthusiast. Prepare to be outraged!On the other hand, for those who enjoy getting a bit riled up and seeing just how far the bureaucrats want to go in limiting American's access to public lands, we recommend a quick read of the Summary, but then scrolling immediately to page 6.WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
A simple email form letter will NOT be effective against these new restrictive policies. USA-ALL is encouraging all of our ACTION ALERT subscribers to contact the BLM via email as soon as possible. We've has made it as easy as possible. Please read BRC's analysis on their website and see our comment suggestions below.Comments on the DRMP/DEIS will be accepted through November 29, 2004.
