    IDAHO - OHV Gas Tax Legislation Update - Action Needed
    Dear BRC Alert Subscriber,
    As you may recall, last month we passed along a good news update on the OHV Gas Tax. (See Action Alert) Well, Sandra Mitchell with the Idaho Recreation Council (IRC) just sent us the latest update on that legislation.
    The bill to restore gas tax to Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) passed the House Transportation Committee with a 'do pass recommendation' yesterday! As of today, it has not been scheduled for a floor vote. We expect that will happen next week. However, now would be a good time to notify your representatives of your desire for them to vote for this bill.
    How To Contact Legislators:
    Simply say, "Please vote for H 144 to restore the gas tax to IDPR. Thank you" and leave your name and address.
    If you prefer, you can, of course, be eloquent!
    We know this is a busy season and we apologize for bugging you with 'more to do' but if you don't do it, who will?
    To read the legislation go here
    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
    Thanks you to everyone who was involved,
    Ric Foster
    Public Lands Department Manager
