Take action on the Arrowhead Re-route

Route Adjustment legislation update:

The Route Adjustment legislation has been re-introduced in the 115th Congress and we’re starting over with the process of obtaining bipartisan co-sponsorship, advocating for a sub-committee hearing, testifying, etc.  The bill numbers are H.R. 1026 and S. 363.

The NCTA would like to publicly thank Rep. Richard Nolan and Sen. Amy Klobuchar for making the recent re-introductions and for their steadfast leadership over the years.

How can you help?

We need constituents to contact their Representative and Senators and ask for their support of the legislation.  

 

Here is how you can best accomplish this:

  1. Call their DC office (find your Representative’s contact info here and your Senators here)
  2. Provide them with your name & zip code
  3. State that you “Don’t need a response”
  4. Tell them that you would like to see the Representative co-sponsor H.R. 1026 / Senator co-sponsor S. 363

It might look something like this…

“Hi, my name is ___, I’m a constituent from ___, zip code *****. I don’t need a response. I am in favor of the North Country National Scenic Trail Route Adjustment Act (H.R. 1026 / S.363) and I encourage the Representative / Senator to please co-sponsor this legislation. Thanks for your hard work answering the phones!”

You can also send an email or a letter if you’re more comfortable doing that but they may not be as effective or timely as making a phone call. Be sure to keep track of the current co-sponsors of the bills and our actions via our blog.

What else can you do?

 

Again, help us spread the word by sharing this issue with your friends, family, and hiking partners!
