Help pass positive snowmobile legislation

SAM’s legislative bill S1955 currently resides in the Senate Ways and Means Committee. It needs to be moved out of committee for action ASAP. We need your help.

How can you impact our bill?

You should write, email, snail mail, phone or visit your legislators. It has been said “a dozen phone calls” will get things moving. Any contact is good, so to get things rolling.

Contact Senate President Stan Rosenburg, especially if you are a voter in his district.

If you live in Northampton, Amherst, Hadley, Hatfield, Pelham, South Hadley, Bernardston, Colrain, Deerfield, Erving, Gill, Greenfield, Leverett, Leyden, Montague, New Salem, Northfield, Orange, Shutesbury, Sunderland, Warwick, Wendell, Whatley or Royalston, contact Senate President Rosenberg now!

CALL Senate President Rosenberg, 617-722-1500 or [email protected].

The message is simple:

Ask Senator Rosenburg to help move S1955 and support its passage. Thank him for his support.


What’s in Bill S1955?

The bill would implement a safety education program that will eventually diminish many problems on our trails.

It would also set a fine for damaging a snowmobile trail with a wheeled vehicle, something we would all like to prevent.

This bill would add a position for snowmobilers on the Stewardship Council for the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). This is most definitely worth fighting for, as it would give a stronger voice to our recreation at a time when it is expanding its out reach.

Lastly, this bill would establish a Land Stamp Fund to be included in registrations that would be used to purchase land or easements for our trail system. Certainly, when all aspects of this bill become law the benefits to snowmobiling will be significant.
