Senate Bill to Increase Funding for
Local Clubs Passes Unanimously

       A bill presented by the Senate Natural Resources Committee to increase
the share of snowmobile registration receipts to local snowmobile clubs in
Iowa passed unanimously March 13 49-0.
       Now heading over to the House for debate, Senate File 472 calls for at
least 70 percent of the revenue to be earmarked for the local side and the
remaining 30 percent for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR).
       Currently, "at least 50 percent goes to the local side and up to 50 percent
goes to the state side for administration and law enforcement," explained Past
ISSA President Terry Durby, chair of the ISSA's Legislative Committee.
       As detailed in the brochure below, the ISSA had lobbied for 80 percent of
the funds, but reducing its asking by 10 percent "was a compromise we have
worked with the IDNR on and would make significant differences to the
availability of funds for the clubs," Durby said.
       Support will continue to be needed for this legislation as it moves through
the legislative calendar. You can find out who your elected representative is by
