go to the AMA page and then go to the state alerts and send the letter to your state rep or just send one on your own.
here is the info:



The American Motorcyclist Association and the Pennsylvania Off-Highway Vehicle Association hope you’ll contact your state representative to support an important bill and the appropriate amendments that would protect landowners from the high costs of litigation when they allow legal, traditional recreational activities – such as responsible off-highway-vehicle riding – on their land.
Pennsylvania House Bill 544 is scheduled for a vote on Tuesday. The amendments are also critical. Our software will help you send the right message.
Common sense legal reform is the core of this issue. Landowners must be granted protections from the costs of litigation filed by overreaching lawyers. The current system promotes a climate of fear and intimidation, preventing landowners from using their property as they wish.
The bill, called the Recreational Use of Land and Water Act, is intended to reduce the liability for landowners who allow the public to use their land for OHV riding and other activities. Protection from liability claims would encourage more landowners to open up their properties to responsible OHV riders.
Bowing to pressure from trial lawyer lobbyists, state legislators added amendments that render the bill nearly useless for opening new recreational lands. But now, a legislators’ agreement with the trial lawyers could allow the bill to move from the House to the Senate with only the amendments we support. Further OHV-advocate lobbying may be needed in the Senate, but our message now is clear.
Fortunately, State Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams/Franklin) has offered the practical compromise amendment, A-04738 and Rep. Mark Longietti (D-Mercer) has penned amendment A 04993, both of which the AMA and PaOHV support. We ask that you encourage your representative to support H.B. 544 and only amendments A-04738 and A-04993.
Simply fill out the form below, and our software will ensure your representative will receive the right message – whether to support the bill and proper amendments or encourage his fellow legislators to do so.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA to help us protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling, and your support will help the AMA fight for your rights – on the road, trail and racetrack and in the halls of government. To join, go to AmericanMotorcyclist.com/membership/join. To encourage your friends to join, tell them about the many AMA benefits you appreciate and forward the link to them. Thank you in advance for contacting your representative.
If you have any thoughts or concerns to share on this legislation, please do so by emailing the AMA at grassroots@ama-cycle.org.

I just received a email from my state rep. This bill is up for final vote in the house on Monday April 4th. If it passes I believe it goes to the governor to sign.

This bill passed the house again so I think it has to go back to the senate again. As soon as I hear something I will post.

bill is dead for this year as it is being held in a committee I beleive chaired by a senator or rep from Lycoming county who heads the committee and will not let it out for vote. He is a well entrenched person who has no opposition in his area to even be voted out and is holding up possible riding areas being opened up for all off roaders in this state Why I ask ????
