A bill has been introduced in the Senate to designate many areas of the country, including huge chunks of the Moab region, as Federal Wilderness areas. It is bill s.799 - America's Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009.

Here's the full bill: http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s799/text

Scroll down to section 104 for the Moab region. View other sections for places near you. They're taking it all!

If you enjoy offroad in Moab or most anywhere else offroading is done, get involved now!

One suggestion I think might help would be to get local governments such as towns and counties to quickly designate all popular trails as roads, instead of trails. If they are legal roads before this is enacted, at least they would have a harder time preventing access and closing them. Contact and explain to every town and county in the region that if this passes, their tourism trade will be over. It's that simple. Email, call, and write every outfitter, hotel, chamber of commerce, and similar in the region. Also, take the time to contact every Senator, Congressman, and the Whitehouse and tell them to not close these areas to 4x4 offroad access. Hurry, they've already quickly passed and signed into law other similar bills, so we don't have much time.

It's also been introduced in the House of Representatives as H.R. 1925
