Default NOVA targeted again

Dear OHV/ORV, WATV, and general recreationists,

Washington State Joint Transportation Committee has commissioned a 2-year study that would deplete the gas tax and move us to a "road use mileage tax" resulting in the zeroing out the NOVA trail grant funds to all recreation users and the snowmobilers grooming grants in time because of bound pay off cycles.

I learned of this in a meeting I had with the RCO director and staff last Friday. Unfortunately, we only have till this Thursday the 14th to comment on this issue.

We need all of you to comment that: "The NOVA program must continue to be funded by a percentage of the new system equal to or greater than the current funding levels!!!"
