NORTH BETHESDA, MD (Oct. 16) – The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) is announcing today its strong endorsement of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan for President and Vice President of the United States. TPAC was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public and private lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
Early in President Barack Obama’s term he showed his passion for burdensome federal regulations when he appointed extreme leaders from the environment movement such as Carol Browner to be Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change. Browner was former head of the EPA during the Clinton-era.
Lisa Jackson was appointed to head the EPA and Nancy Sutley as chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
On the other hand, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have regulatory reform of the EPA and other federal agencies as a key plank in their platform. A president Romney would require congressional approval of all new “major” regulations and reform the legal liability system to prevent spurious litigation.
Don Amador, Founder of the Trail Political Action Committee, states, “The OHV community is being continually bombarded with new federal rules and regulations that impact our ability to enjoy family-oriented motorized recreation on public and private lands. The Obama Administration has shown no substantive interest in scaling back their politically motivated regulatory agenda on lands managed by the U.S Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management.”
“Trail voters believe there is one clear choice in this election. If you want to see the White House address tort reform and support personal freedoms which include the responsible recreational use of our public lands then you and your friends should vote for Romney/Ryan on November 6,” Amador concludes.
