Trackway Bill again threatens Chile Challenge

Four Wheeling Friends:

Senator Bingaman (D-NM) has introduced a huge omnibus lands bill that tries to slip in the Prehistoric Trackways National Monument. This bill is S.3213. You can look at it at Thomas.gov: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:S3213: Title II Subtitle B contains the trackway national monument. This omnibus bill also contains the National Landscape Conservation System bill. If you think the Wilderness Act has been misused and adulterated to become a land closure weapon, the NLCS is the icing on the cake. It will most likely be used to close the rest of the BLM land to OHV and ranching use. You might say that the NCLS is in place now and has not been used as a weapon yet. That is true, right now it is just an a department of Interior administrative program. Once it is codified by Congress and becomes law, then the lawsuits can start to use it to close whatever wilderness has not been able to close.

Senate bill 3213 must be stopped NOW!!

What must you do?

1. Contact Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and ask him to not bring this bill to the Senate floor for a vote. As Majority Leader in the U.S. Senate, Reid controls what is brought to a vote. If this bill becomes controversial, the chances of it being acted on lessen.

2. Contact New Mexico Senators Bingaman and Domenici and tell them that you oppose this bill. Tell them that this proposed national monument is just an excuse to close this area to recreation and that there are no exposed trackways left. Senator Bingaman visited this area in June. Ask him if he saw any trackways or just a few tracks in a rubble pile?

3. Contact the Senator from your state and ask him or her to vote against S.3213.

4. Contact Congressman Stevan Pearce (R-NM) and ask him to do everything he can to block a similar bill in the House.

We really need your help to keep our public lands open and especially need help saving the Chile Challenge. Please take the time to write today and protect your sport from S. 3213.

For more information about the proposed trackway national monument go to: http://www.paleozoictrackways.org/index.htm - pay special attention to our alternate proposal and suggest that when you write your emails.

Thank you,
