  • Support legislation that at least 60% of snowmobiling expenditures from the dedicate fund go to Grants-In-Aid
  • Support legislation that will exempt building materials and supplies used for snowmobile trails from sales tax
  • Support legislation that requires that registration stickers are a uniform color for each registration cycle
  • Support legislation that increases club fees for safety training
  • Protection of the unrefunded gas tax attributed to snowmobile use
  • Protection of the use of snowmobiles on public land
  • Support programs and policy that encourage continued access to private land for public use
  • Support the use of a portion of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds for trails that benefit snowmobiling
  • Support legislation that will protect and accommodate trail crossings impacted by development of any new publicly funded rail developments for both light and heavy rail
  • Support legislation and/or policy that will allow Grant-In-Aid trails to remain and/or be added to all existing or new WMA/AMA's.
  • Oppose any action at any governmental level to ban studs on natural surface trails
