Take Action: RTP Needs Your Help in US Senate!

- Advertisement -

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP), which provides significant funding for the purchase of groomers is in trouble in the US Senate!

While the House highway reauthorization bill, The American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act (H.R.7) included the RTP program as a separate and distinct program funded as it has been in the past, the US Senate bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) eliminates the program.

Without RTP, many clubs will not be able to afford a new groomer and our trail system will suffer.

The Senate legislation will be taken up shortly. Please take a minute to send a short and simple note (e-mail is quickest) to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Senator Charles (Chuck) Schumer:

Dear Senator:

Please ensure that the Senate highway reauthorization act, Map 21, includes a provision to continue the Recreational Trails Program (RTP).

Thank you,
