Dear action alert subscriber,



Hang on to your hats the Utah 2008 General Legislative Session is well underway. USA-ALL is actively participating in a variety of bills this year. We are excited to be working on your behalf and keeping tabs on our elected officials. USA-ALL has made real progress over the last few years in this area and it has proven a very effective use of our time. If you would like to help USA-ALL in our efforts at the capitol send us an email we can always use some help.



Here is a list of Bills that have some affect on USA-ALL Members.

HCR005


Concurrent Resolution Urging Congressional Approval of R.s. 2477 Rights-of-way Recognition Act

USA-ALL is supporting HB 205 and its sister bill SB 181. But we prefer the House version. We are supporting HB 362 but we feel that State Parks and Recreation needs a higher percentage of our fuel tax somewhere in the neighborhood of 2-3% , but this bill is a good start.



We are emphatically supporting both resolutions.



As these bills and measures progress we will update you on their progress, status, and what you can do to help their passage. So far there are not any bills that we are against, but well keep watching.
