    Well ya got your wish, the Amendment that didn't go far enough has failed. So now we have the original law that sucks even worse and could outlaw Pee Wee events and decimate Juniors.

    Aside from extra fees for dualsporting, there were OTHER aspects of the law that NETRA was understandably concerned about; paying 30 bucks for a second Chapter 90B registration ("street" is Chapter 90) wasn't the highest priority.

    The suburban and urban districts in Eastern MA don't care about legal trail riding, they are more concerned with trying to get a numbered sticker on the side of the outlaw punks riding illegally and trespassing on land in their neighborhoods.

    Missed the ride but it was lots of fun last year?
    ... just stumbled across this Mass trail law stuff :eek1 whawha what ?!

    Where is the other thread to get people aware of this.
    What enviro-mental group is pressuring, lobbying and paying off legislators this time? or is this just some other abuse of power? or another example of legislators unable to be financially responsible forcing themselves to make more bad decisions?

    Quite a bit more is available on NEDB, not sure that linking to another site (although I consider them complimentary rather than competitors) is kosher so you will have to search a bit.

    I didn't want the amendment to fail. My wish was for NETRA not to take a passive approach to the issue. With our side willing to compromise at every juncture, it's makes it to easy for the state to shut us out.
