    Ever wonder what happens to the gasoline taxes you pay at the pump—for your off-road motorcycle or ATV, your snowmobile or 4x4? Did you know that the federal gasoline tax goes to fund a variety of programs one of which is the Recreational Trails Program (RTP)? RTP is an increasingly important program because every year, as more and more Americans seek to use recreational trails for a variety of activities, these funds are used to construct and maintain recreational trails helping to make them safer.

    Funding levels for RTP are currently being considered by the House of Representatives, H.R. 3550. This bill includes even greater funding for RTP than the Senate bill which passed just recently. RTP funding would start at $70 million annually and grow to $150 million over the next five years. ARRA followed the funding debate for RTP when it was being considered by the Senate and is following the debate even closer as it is now being taken up by the House of Representatives.

    Your Member of Congress needs to hear from you now as funding levels are being decided.

    ARRA supports responsible recreation and would like Congress to fairly and adequately fund the Recreational Trails Program. So get involved by writing to your Representative and expressing your support for better recreational trails. Click the below link to write your Representative.
