REPORT TO CONGRESS IS OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLETELY
RESCIND YOUTH MODEL OHV BAN
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED
know, BRC has been participating in efforts
to rescind a youth-model off-highway motorcycle
and ATV ban along with other state, local and
national OHV advocacy groups. The next few days
offer a golden opportunity to completely remove
But we need your help. OHV groups have met with
agency officials and politicians. We have the
acknowledgment that the youth-model ban was not
Congress's intent when they passed the Consumer
Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). But the
Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), the
government agency charged with implementing the
law, says their hands are tied. There are
several solutions available, but both Congress
and the agency need to act.
We believe that a report from CPSC to Congress
regarding CPSIA gives our community a golden
opportunity to fix this lousy situation. Our
action item is below. We have tried to make it
as easy as possible so it won't take unnecessary
time away from work and family.
CPSC's report is due January 15, 2010. The next
few days present a key opportunity, and BRC is
most influential when our membership makes their
lease take a few minutes to complete the action
item, and please also forward this alert to your
friends, family and riding buddies.
Let's not miss this opportunity.
