Bill Flores (R-TX) and Peter Welch (D-VT), would cap the volume of ethanol blended into the nation’s fuel supply at 9.7 percent of the total volume of gasoline.

Contact your U.S. senator now to support full funding of the Recreational Trails Program

Senate Bill 1527 has five sponsors, many more needed

The federal Recreational Trails Program has used off-highway vehicle users’ federal gas taxes to fund more than 24,000 trail projects nationally since 1992. It is clearly one of the best tools we have to help fund trail construction and maintenance.

Only about $84 million of the estimated $270 million collected annually on OHV fuel makes its way to trails projects. That’s less than a third. And it’s a gap that every trail user should want closed.

In late May, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) introduced legislation that takes the first, important step toward getting RTP the full funding it deserves. Four other senators have signed on to co-sponsor the bill, which requires the Federal Highway Administration

United States Trade Representative proposes tariffs on select European motorcycles, parts, accessories

The Office of United States Trade Representative 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 AMA is joining others in the motorcycling community to oppose the latest ill-conceived proposal — part of a dispute over aircraft subsidies — which would cause serious, and potentially irreversible, harm to American small- and medium-sized business owners selling the motorcycles, parts and accessories.

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.
