    BLUERIBBON COALITION LEGISLATIVE UPDATE!
    IDAHO - H144 to RESTORE THE GAS TAX - PASSED THE SENATE! UNANIMOUSLY!
    Dear BRC Alert Subscriber,
    A few minutes ago, H144 to RESTORE THE GAS TAX PASSED THE SENATE! UNANIMOUSLY!

    Now, it's on to the Governor's desk for signature! Many thanks to all of you who helped get this bill passed!

    URGENT UPDATE ON S 1001 YOUTH OHV TRAINING COURSE

    The Senate will likely be voting on this bill TOMORROW! IT IS URGENT THAT YOU CONTACT YOUR SENATOR NOW TO VOTE FOR THIS BILL! See details below:

    Click on this link, pick your Senator from the list, select e-mail, fill in your name and address, and cut n paste the following message (or write your own).
    "Please vote for S-1001 which requires OHV operators under the age of 16 to complete a safety course before riding (supervised) on Forest Service roads. This will help ensure the continued use of Forest Service roads by the OHV community. Thank you"

    IT IS SO SIMPLE, YOU'LL WANT TO E-MAIL MORE THAN ONE! Do it now and pass this on!

    This bill is far more controversial than the gas tax bill. It only passed out of committee because of "significant constituent support" - that's your e-mails. We need to redouble our efforts to get the whole Senate to pass it. If you've already e-mailed your Senator, then pick a few more to contact.

    Many many thanks,
    Adena
