Assemblyman Eric Munoz Wants You Out of NJ !

ASSEMBLY Bill, No. 2238


A new bill in NJ proposes to eliminate off highway vehicles (motorcycles, ATVs and snowmobiles) from state parks and state forests. This bill would effectively squash the Xtreme Habitat proposal to create a recreation facility including mountain and BMX bicycles, inline skates, skateboards, facilities for persons with disabilities as well as motorcycles and ATVs. For information about Xtreme Habitat visit www.xtremehabitat.org

Please review the information below and contact your elected leaders.

HIT THE PANIC BUTTON HARD!!! The Sierra Club is backing a campaign to eliminate all ATVs, snowmobiles and motorcycles from state land. If they get their way, there won't be any NJ Enduros, Dual Sports or H/S in 2003.

They already have a bill in the NJ Assembly. These people are very serious, and usually get their way. You must read the bill in its entirety. It outlaws snowmobiles, ATVs and motorcycles from everywhere in NJ except your garage.

Here is the bill # 2238 introduced in the NJ State Assembly on May 9th:
www.njleg.state.nj.us/2002/Bills/A2500/2238_I1.HTM
The synopsis: "Prohibits use of all-terrain vehicles, dirt bikes, off-road motorcycles, and other similar off-road vehicles in State parks and forests." It also forbids the NJ DEP from issuing permits for organized "special events" (Enduros, Dual Sports, Hare Scrambles). Read the entire bill and there is no doubt it is directed straight at you.

Here is the gentleman who introduced the bill:
http://12.107.80.70/Members/munoz.asp
Assemblyman Eric Munoz -District 21 (Essex, Morris, Somerset and Union).
It's quite obvious he isn't interested in your point of view, even if you voted for him.

The campaign is directed at NJ Governor James E. McGreevey. You
can contact the Governor and voice your opposition to the bill in one of three ways:

You can leave the Governor a direct message on his web site.
http://www.state.nj....or/govmail.html

Governors Telephone - 609.292.6000

Governors Fax - 609.292.3454


Here is a list of all the NJ Legislators.
http://12.107.80.70/Members/roster.asp
You want to start out by writing to your own Senator and Assemblyman. Then
start at the top and work your way down. Send an email or letter
to every single Senator and Assemblyman on the list. Think this is silly?
This is how the opposition works.

The AMA has a method in which you can send an email directly to your NJ Legislators.
Go to www.ama-cycle.org Next click on Rapid Response center logo Then click on 'Issues & Legislation' tab Then click the 'Current Legislation' link
Scroll down to NJ and find Bill A2238
From there you enter your zip code and write your letter.

Not sure what to write? Join the discussion in progress on the bulletin board.

Get the word out to every rider you know. This has to be squashed now! There is NO ALTERNATIVE!
If you want to know how you can help THIS IS IT. WRITE THOSE LETTERS.

Hey, I'm not even from NJ, but man this really chaffes my hide. This fat squid has no right to launch such a campaign. I sent my letter explaining my views on this bill, don't know how much water it will hold since I'm not a resident.

Peace

Dodger :) :D
