Re: [RC] re: fees on public lands - Truman Prevatt

When it comes to getting clout in the political process there is an old saying, "money and votes talk, suckers walk."

Why do public land managers put in paved 2 mile nature trails with handicap access - because there are a lot of people (a lot more than ride a horse) that will use them and be please they are there and there is funding to build them!  You are right the reason the OHV people in CA and FL have clout is because there are the funds in place to support their requirements.

In Idaho, a number of years past, we tried to get the Legislature to set
up a fee system comparable to the OHV and Boating fees. The majority of
the horsemen were very much in favor of such a fee. It would have been a
"trailer" sticker" enforceable only when parked on public lands.

It was soundly rejected,
