anyway someone should set up a online petition so you dont have to print and send it in via snail mail. Id sign a online petition.
 
Guys the people we are fighting aren't from idaho (What's new!) so I say send it in it can't hurt. You visit here with your bikes! You spend Money here! You should have a say!

IDAHO
S. 3294 – CIEDRA - Central Idaho Economic Development and Recreation Act
The U.S. Senate Subcommittee for Public Lands and Forests heard testimony June 16, 2010 on Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson's Boulder/White Clouds Wilderness bill. Known as CIEDRA, this legislation would close approximately 80 miles of mountain bike single track and tens of thousands of acres of prized high mountain snowmobiling.

Apparently, the Subcommittee testimony raised serious questions...

CIEDRA deemed a ‘tough sell’
Wilderness bill rides momentum after hearing, but opposition looms

Adena Cook, BRC's Senior Policy Adviser, wanted everyone to read Idaho Governor Butch Otter's letter opposing CIEDRA. Adena reports that Otter's letter combined with calls and emails from the OHV and snowmobile community is making an impression on Senator Risch. She said “Your e-mails and letters ARE making a difference. They have REAL IMPACT.”

So much impact that Idaho's Wilderness Advocacy Media, in the form of Rocky Barker, environment and natural resource writer for the Idaho Statesman, seems to be doing their level best to spin the opposition to Rep. Simpson's bill. Barker has posted two blurbs on his blog:

Other collaborative processes threatened if Simpson's bill goes down

Speaking of Sandra Mitchell...
Sandra Mitchell sent a email update to members of Idaho Recreation Council and Idaho State Snowmobile Association reacting to the news that Senator Risch is reconsidering his support of that bill:

"We have waited a long time to hear something like this and I know there were times when we all felt as if CIEDRA was a done deal. Thanks to your hard work and that magnificent letter from the Governor; it isn’t over.

Again, I am going to ask you do something and that is to contact Senator Risch and say thanks for his comments in the Statesman and for understanding that this CIEDRA bill doesn’t work for the people or the land. I promise you, by acting you will make a difference.

We have come so far and worked so hard, we cannot give up and numbers still matter. It is important that the Senator know folks care and are paying attention."
