11NR01 - MRF News Release - Urgent Call to Action

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
03 January 2011

Contact: Jeff Hennie, Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs

Urgent Call to Action
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation issues Urgent Call to Action

Please call your incoming Republican Congressmen and tell them to STOP a proposed change to the House Rules -- (Rule 21, Clause 3) -- that would break the TRUST WITH FUEL TAXPAYERS and undermine the Highway Trust Fund's funding guarantees for roads. 

TO STOP THESE CHANGES, REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE MUST HEAR FROM YOU TODAY!  

The Capitol Switchboard Number is 202-225-3121 -- ask for your NEW Representative! 

The change is terrible policy for highway users and it breaks the faith in the Highway Trust Fund.  Highway user fees could be used for non-transportation purposes.

Highway funding could be reduced and the "savings" used for deficit reduction or other purposes; and the rule change would force highway funding to rely on the annual appopriations process rather than the established funding guarantees. 

Motorcycists pay into this fund with the guarantee that the money will be used for transportation related projects ONLY. This rule change breaks that promise and will allow fuel tax revenues be used for anything Congress wants.  

WE MUST REACH THE FOLLOWING KEY DECISIONMAKERS.  Please call now! The Republican Conference will be voting on this on Tuesday, January 4th 2011.
