Urge Support for H.R. 5580

Help Support H.R. 5580 by Contacting Your Representative Take Action! <http://capwiz.com/amacycle/utr/1/JVC...GRC/5510098011>
AMA & ATVA Ask for your help to support more transparency and public input in the National Monument designation process

On July 14, 2010, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and its sister organization, the All-Terrain Vehicle Association (ATVA), sent a letter <http://capwiz.com/amacycle/utr/1/JVC...GRD/5510098011> to Representative Devin Nunes <http://capwiz.com/amacycle/utr/1/JVC...GRE/5510098011> (R-CA) in support of H.R. 5580 <http://capwiz.com/amacycle/utr/1/JVC...GRF/5510098011> , the National Monument Designation Transparency and Accountability Act of 2010.

The bill would create a process of public involvement and open disclosure of plans to create new monument designations. Additionally, parameters around designations would be established that limit the area to be protected to only what is "essential to ensure" proper care and management.

H.R. 5580 would also require each designation to be accompanied by impact reports on the local, state and federal economies and how as many current public uses, such as off-highway motorized recreation, can be maintained.

The AMA and ATVA are calling on all members and responsible motorized recreation enthusiasts to contact their Representatives and ask them to cosponsor H.R. 5580.

You can find contact information for your elected officials at AmericanMotorcyclist.com > Rights > Issues & Legislation, then enter your zip code in the "Find Your Officials" box. A prewritten e-mail is available for you to send your Representative immediately by following the "Take Action" option and entering your information. The AMA encourages riders to personalize their message by drawing on their own personal riding experiences.

Please write or call your Representative today and ask them to cosponsor H. R. 5580.
