Dear Trail Voter,
As TPAC pointed out throughout the 2012 election cycle, OHV recreation on public lands is governed by politicians and/or their appointees at the regulatory agencies and departments such as the Department of Interior and EPA.
In a letter sent to President Obama today, several hard-core anti-OHV green groups joined over 200 other like-minded organizations and petitioned the White House to appoint Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) as the new Secretary of the Interior. Those anti-OHV groups include the Center for Biological Diversity, PEER, Rainforest Action Network, Arizona Wilderness Coalition, and the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance just to name a few.
Link to CBD Support Letter for Grijalva:
In TPAC's opinion, there is not a more hostile politician to OHV recreation than Grijalva. As chair of the powerful House Natural Resources Committee a few years ago, he was known for holding a large number of anti-OHV hearings where he and his supporters took pot shots at responsible OHV recreation.
Be assured that TPAC will be monitoring this breaking development.
