Spoke with the legislator sponsoring our legislation on Saturday. He is still trying to advance it in the short period remaining in this session. Still possible that we will get it to a committee hearing although it will be short notice if we do.

Helped out with a meeting that gave information to local officials, news people, and members of the public concerning the OHV park they want to put together in Forest County. Some people from NOHVCC made presentations on how other parks developed and what their economic impact is. There has been some growing controversy in the area about developing the park. Much of that has to do with potential costs to the county government and disruption of other activities like hunting. The lack of information on some topics, including possible locations for the park and how it will be funded, has some residents frustrated and concerned. Noise and environmental issues haven't been a big topic of concern so far.

The person leading the effort for the park mentioned that the park would be principally used by 4WD enthusiasts followed closely by ATV/UTV people. He mentioned that motorcycle use would be "lagging far to the rear" of the other two user groups.

The briefings about how several other areas developed and operate was great.

Husaberchamp and I are local (WI) reps for NOHVCC (National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council) which led to our involvement helping out with the meeting.

Just got off the phone with a leg rep in Madison. We did pretty well on co-sponsors for the OHM bill in both the assembly and the senate. Still waiting to find out if we can get things moving with a hearing yet this session.

Thanks to everyone that contacted their legislators! If your legislator did not join as a cosponsor, it does not mean that they won't support the bill on the floor. It probably has more to do with that they don't have a dog in the fight in their district so they didn't choose to co-sponsor.

Still looking good for a hearing yet this session for the OHM bill.

In the mean time, I got elected Chairman of the Governor's State Trails Council.

Earlier this year I mentioned that I approached Travel Wisconsin about promoting dual sport and adventure motorcycling is Wisconsin. Over time I was able to get an account with them so I could post some events and riding opportunities to the site to promote our recreational interest, increase our visibility and acceptance, and inform more people of riding opportunities. I will soon have an article posted to the site introducing our recreational interest there.

Here are some of the postings I have in place as of this date:

Ride for Research

Big Woods 200

Field and Forest Dual Sport

Bucky Dual Sport

Northern Wisconsin Adventure Trail

Northern Highland - American Legion Dual Sport Path

South of Wabeno Dual Sport

Lakewood Area Adventure Motorcycle Path

Flambeau Dual Sport Motorcycle Path

Conover Dual Sport

HarePare Dual Sport

I wanted to post the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail as well but someone went direct to TW post it before our account was in place. Looks like a business posted it. Now it is not being maintained. I will ask Chad if he wants me to adopt this under the DS and ADV listings so it doesn't disappear. Listings need to be regularly maintained so I will have to act on them to keep them alive.

The Off-Highway Motorcycle legislation is coming to a hearing at the Capitol on Wednesday, February 12th, in room 417N (GAR Hall). I will be coordinating some of the OHM community's participation in this hearing. We will have 1 or 2 people speak in favor of the bill, but it is very important that we have many others attend the hearing and register at the door in favor of the bill. Please attend and register in favor of the bill if you are able. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.

AB 694 https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2013/proposals/ab694

PUBLIC HEARING
Committee on Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage
The committee will hold a public hearing on the following items at the time specified below:
Wednesday, February 12, 2014

(Or Immediately Following the Executive Session)
417 North (GAR Hall)

By the way, I should mention that you may find the bill hard to digest since there are rules and exceptions posted in different places in the bill. It is difficult to absorb in a single reading.
