BIG NEWS! Utah Representative John Curtis introduced the Historic Roadways Protection Act in the House of Representatives this week. We’ve been encouraging everyone to support this legislation to save our Moab trails since it was introduced in the U.S. Senate on October 26. The next step was to get a member of the House of Representatives – ideally one who represents Utah – to introduce companion legislation in the House.
Representative Curtis has introduced HR 6396 in the House, and this is big win for the thousands of you who have been contacting Congress to encourage your members to support this legislation.
At first, everyone was saying that saving our trails in Moab through legislation would be a long shot. We disagree. It can be a long process, but with a motivated, passionate group of Americans it is never a long shot to make these changes.
This is a big win, but we still have a lot of work to do.
UPDATE for the week of November 13-18, 2023: Please call the Utah delegation and encourage them to support the Historic Roadways Protection Act as well as sending a letter below. You can also call Senator Mike Lee and Representative John Curtis to thank them for introducing this legislation.
