Stay on Offense Regarding CPSC Ban of Youth OHVs

The General asks you to keep the pressure up on the CPSC
to grant the petitions of the Motorcycle Industry Council
And Specialty Vehicle Institute of America for emergency
relief. Family OHV recreation, dealers, and youth OHV events are
being negatively impacted.

Even though the official public comment period has ended for
the CPSC’s Rulemaking process that will consider permanent
exclusions for youth OHVs, riders and dealers must keep the pressure on the CPSC to grant the MIC’s request for temporary exclusions.

Also, you must continue to make appointments and/or personal
phone calls to your Member of Congress regardless of party affiliation.
I salute those who made those visits such as Pacific Motorsports – a Honda
and Yamaha dealer – in Eureka, California. They visited the local office of
Congressman Mike Thompson (D-Napa) and requested his assistance.

Such efforts resulted in a February 6, 2009 letter from 6 Members of
the Western Caucus to the CPSC asking them to grant the Industry’s petition
for emergency relief.

This is truly one time when YOU are making a difference. Stay on

See several news links below – your collective voice is being heard.
Also, you can send a letter via a number of ongoing efforts.
