Santa Rita’s go to court…

Last Tuesday, July 23rd, Judge James Soto presided over an all-day hearing regarding the proposed Rosemont Mine in the Santa Rita Mountains.

The lawyers on both sides gave oral arguments. The purpose was to help the judge decide whether he will grant an injunction that will stop groundbreaking activities connected with the mine until he makes decisions on the two cases that are before him.  

He made no decision on Tuesday, but took everything “under advisement.” He said he will issue his decision before August 1 (I assume this means on July 31).

We all thought our lawyers did an excellent job and we feel positive. But, the judge gets the last word – so, as always, STAY TUNED. For details about the hearing, see Tony Davis’s article in the AZ Star here.

And, thanks for your support over these many years!!

Euro parts tariff

Oppose tariffs on EU motorcycles parts, and accessories

Sign the petition today!

The Office of United States Trade Representative, as part of a dispute over aircraft subsidies, has proposed 100 percent tariffs on motorcycles imported from countries in the European Union with an engine size between 500cc and 700cc, along with parts and accessories.

The American Motorcyclist Association is joining others in the motorcycling community to oppose the USTR’s latest ill-conceived proposal. Motorcyclists should not be penalized with exorbitant tariffs because of an unrelated trade dispute. Any trade sanctions imposed as a result of this dispute should come from more closely related industries or products.

To oppose this tariff, the AMA is asking our members to sign this petition.
