New law is in!

Looks like its official folks. HB 49 which is the new lift law in Utah has been signed by Governor Mike Leavitt today. Proof positive that a few folks can make a huge difference. For those that didn't catch earlier emails, the new laws measure off of frame clearance rather than lift height. This means my Suzuki with 35" tires will be legal now though barely).

I have been invited along with 9 other individuals to a ceremonial signing and picture taking session with the governor of Utah to honor this occaission on next Tuesday. The new law, though signed today, will not fully be 'activated' until the end of April... so you still have to be on good behaviour in Moab :^)

I wish to express a personal thanks to all those folks in Utah who took the time to write their legislators to make this thing happen. I'd also like thank all those folks who emailed and called us expressing kudos to our involvement in, commitment to, and time investments within the off-road
community. We hope to set an example for others in the industry to get off their duffs and get involved, as well as to the individual offroad enthusiast. Together we can make a difference!!!

Re: New law is in!

Does this mean, with all of the support behind laws like this, that the eco-nazis aren't going to have a prayer when trying to close down some of Moab? especially with the new administration?

Re: New law is in!

The eco-nazis are a whole separate deal. Not this issue of the Katana, but the next, I'll have a run-down of what is going on in Moab in my Landuse column. The enivros are very serious about closing Moab trails. We've been able to stave off problems so far, but more help is always needed.

One more note, while Gayle Norton certainly seems to be less 'wilderness' oriented than the last Sec of Interior, it doesn't mean that local land managers can't implement their own trail closures. DOn't be lulled into a false sense of security. Activism is still highly needed!
