BLUERIBBON COALITION NATIONWIDE ACTION ALERT!

REPORT TO CONGRESS IS OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLETELY RESCIND YOUTH MODEL OHV BAN

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

As you 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 the ban.

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 voices heard.

Please 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,

Brian Hawthorne
