All indications are YES! In talking with a Senate contact, I was instructed to start getting our things together. Subject matter, people and FACTS! We will have about a four day notice before the hearing date. Everything must be in power point presentation and six copies. Appears we are just a few weeks out before a final decision.

We can continue to some degree on our present theme, HB 4323 IS INTENDED TO MANAGE THE ORV ACTIVITY and will do so by INCREASING SAFETY by having additional enforcement, INCREASED ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION providing for stiffer penalties. CONVIENANCE to the user for the simple errands. INCREASED RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITY, giving locals and tourist reason to enjoy Michiganís out of doors. Creating an ECONOMIC GENERATOR for the entire state in taxes collected, increased tourism and jobs provided.

We need the following to step up with facts in hand on economic benefit, presentations supported by fact regarding safety matters. We need plans on how your community or county, has or may offer, activity concerning ORV use such as routes, trails in the area, campgrounds.

Give me a call at 989 469-2405 if you think you may have something we can use. We MUST remember, the more fact we offer, the better chance we have of winning. We CANNOT go into the hearing with our comments based on emotions! Everything offered will be placed before the proper people and judged on what to use and what not. Every single area is important as we must educate the Senators on the Committee and those on the floor for the final vote.

Waiting for your response.

Later, Dick Ranney
