ACTION ALERT - Send Support Letter to Sen. Paul

Just a few weeks ago, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced S. 2122 to stop the EPA from promulgating new highly restrictive regulations under the Clean Water Act that would extend agency control over very small wetlands and intermittent streams (e.g. mud puddles and small watercourses on trails that occur after a rain storm).

The Recreation HQ supports Paul's effort to block these new EPA closure-oriented regulations. These new rules - supported by hard-core green organizations - are large unfunded mandates that can impact (e.g. close) OHV use on federal, state, and private lands.

Here is link to S2122 Overview

HQ believes anti-access groups will continue to utilize the EPA/CWA/ESA to close recreation roads and trails on public lands as is highlighted in the article below:

 HQ urges your small business or large/small recreation group to join the following groups

Americans for Prosperity
American Land Rights Association
American Policy Center
Kentucky Farm Bureau
Kentucky Coal Association
Take Back Kentucky
Crounse Corporation
James DeLong (Author, Property Matters)
Quiet Warrior Racing
BlueRibbon Coalition

and send a letter in support of S.2122 TODAY to Sen.  Paul’s office – Attn: Rachel Bovard:  

Senator Rand Paul
Member, U.S. Senate

Washington, D.C. 20510

Thanks for doing this today!
