"The American Motorcyclist Association urges everyone to contact their Senators to vote "No" on H.R. 146, the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Acquisition Grant Program. This bill was formerly known as S. 22, the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, which would prohibit all motorized vehicle access including motorcycles and ATVs on over 2 million acres of public lands. As you may know, S. 22 was defeated just days ago on March 11 in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Now, following defeat of the bill, the U.S. Senate leadership is expected to employ a little used parliamentary procedure that allows them to overcome the outcome of the House vote on S. 22."

S. 22 was defeated in the House by only one vote! Now Congress has reintroduced it as H.R. 146, the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Acquisition Grant Program. How's that for obscuring the content of the bill? Now they only need a simple majority instead of a 2/3 majority. Please help retain motorized vehicle access to our public lands by encouraging your representative to vote NO on H.R. 146. This is time critical!

I sent my letter, whether it makes any difference is doubtful at best but it only took a couple of minutes of time.
