7/31/13 - Save Johnson Valley Action
To All SCTA and BNI Members,
Recently, the US House of Representatives passed an initiative that will preserve the Johnson Valley OHV Area and, in turn, help to keep the El Mirage OHV Area from being overwhelmed by users.
Attached is a letter drafted using ORBA (Off Road Business Association) Talking Points from a letter writing campaign they initiated.
We have modified it a bit adding other pertinent information, including the specific provision of HR1960 as it relates to Johnson Valley (2014 NDAA, Title XXX, Subtitle E, Sections 3051 thru 3054).
The attached letter is offered for your information to use in total or in part. HR1960 is now in the Senate and being reviewed by various committees. It is estimated that the Bill will go before the Senate for a vote sometime this Fall. If passed, it will go to the President for his signature. It is crutial that we get involved in a letter writing campaign urging our State Senators and the President to approve this bill. This is a national bill / issue so letters need to come from all states!
Thank you and let's get busy!
7/19/13 Tonight the SCTA Truck Committee petitioned the SCTA Board of Directors to allow competitors of diesel powered race vehicles to provide their own #2 diesel fuel at Bonneville. SCTA has the capability to test the fuel for record certification. The motion was passed by the Board. Jim Dunn
