URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT



Bill to Severely Limit 4x4 Truck Access Passes in Minnesota House; Moves to Senate



Legislation (H.F. 3116) that would limit modified 4x4 trucks to minimally maintained roads and to the area specifically designated for their use is scheduled to be voted on by the full Minnesota Senate. The bill was passed in the Minnesota House on Wednesday, May 17 with these damaging amendments and without an opportunity for public testimony and consideration.



We Urge You to Contact ALL Members of the Minnesota State Senate (List Attached) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to

H.F. 3116



H.F. 3116 would severely restrict 4x4 truck access to Minnesota hobbyists by prohibiting use of "trails," including those designated south of Highway 2 and those north of Highway 2 that are currently open to off-road use.



H.F. 3116 defines 4x4 trucks as 4-wheeled motor vehicles manufactured to operate on public roads and subsequently modified with special tires, suspension or other equipment.



H.F. 3116 unfairly discriminates against aftermarket modifications that provide additional functionality and comfort, while allowing this equipment if original from the factory.



Please contact members of the Minnesota State Senate by e-mail to request their opposition to this bill. Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org. Thank you for your immediate assistance.
