An urgent call to action from WeAreTraffic:
"H.B. 288 threatens the ability of future generations to improve and expand trail systems by hindering the government's ability to assemble the property needed to create safe and continuous trails.
H.B. 288 singles out trail authority and would continue to allow the government to seize property for industrial uses, highways, and other uses - but wouldn't allow so much as an easement for a natural trail to be aquired in the same way.
Tell your representative that you support preserving the authority that has allowed Ohio to create many safe recreational trails that benefit communities and people of all ages. We Are Traffic and the Ohio Bicycle Federation worked with the League of American Bicyclists to provide a quick and easy way to write to your representative."
