HQ Salutes Cong. Sam Farr's Bill to Reopen Clear Creek

The Recreation HQ is extremely pleased to be talking about Congressman Sam Farr’s introduction of the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act of 2012 – H.R. 6286.
BRC News Release on H.R. 6286 - QWR also has an Email Blast below with link to June 2011 video testimony asking Congress to consider a NRA desigation for Clear Creek

This has been a long and bitter battle for the last 4 years and 3 months.  It is my hope that this bill will reopen Clear Creek to responsible OHV recreation and also help reestablish normal and productive relations between the BLM and the user community (e.g. riders, local businesses, county supervisors).

I also want to personal thank those of you in the OHV community who have been supportive of my efforts to address the closure via the legislative process instead of the courts.  Please take time during August to stop by Congressman Farr’s office and thank him for his leadership via H.R. 6286. You can also send him a note as well.

We have more work to do in pushing this through the House and Senate and then to the President.  Knowing many of the Creek fans like I do, I have no doubts that we can accomplish that task.
