Send a Tweet to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman, and the U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary in support of RTP

Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) will join U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx on Wednesday in answering questions on Twitter about the next surface transportation reauthorization. As you know, the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is authorized by this legislation, so this is a great opportunity to highlight your support for RTP.

If you have a twitter account, send a tweet using the hashtag #StuckInTraffic to submit questions or just to voice your support for RTP. You can send the tweet at any time today (2/10) or tomorrow (2/11) before noon.

Please feel free to send the sample tweet below. While it doesn’t ask a question, it is important for these decision makers to understand the breadth of support for this program.

Sample tweet:

Off-highway vehicle enthusiasts pay at the pump. Continue to fund RTP to protect our investment in trails for all users. #StuckInTraffic

About ARRA

Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) was formed to ensure that Americans are not arbitrarily denied the right to responsibly experience and enjoy the public lands that belong to the citizens of the United States. The members of ARRA, which include horseback riders, personal watercraft users, off-highway vehicle and snowmobile riders, and vacationing families, have joined together to provide input on decisions regarding land use designation, recreation opportunities, and preservation. Its members seek responsible consideration of competing activities, which are based on sound environmental principles.
