Default clout alert NOVA funds

Your Nonhighway & Offroad Vehicle Activities (NOVA) funds were STOLEN during
a last minute Legislative Budget action in the 2009 legislative session.
The NMA has a lawsuit pending in an attempt to restore those funds to their
rightful owners (YOU) but that lawsuit still has not had its day in court.

Leave the 4 digit Bill # box BLANK that is provided on the linked site.

Enter {NOVA funds} in the Message Subject box just above where you enter
your detailed message

SAMPLE TEXT (use if it you like!) You can just copy and paste it into the
form on the hot linked site:

Please do not allocate offroad vehicle (ORV) permit revenue or the fuel tax
revenue from offroad vehicle use to anything but the Nonhighway and Offroad
Vehicle Activities (NOVA) account during the creation of this year's budget.
This money was directed to State Parks in 2009 where it provides absolutely
no benefit to those who set up the NOVA fund and contributed to it in good
faith believing legislative promises that it would be used for their
