2019 Snowmachine Tax

Alaska House of Reps: Mark Neuman introduced a House Bill yesterday for vote to increase Snowtrac registration fees from $10 for two years to $20 for two years.
We support this action because we're the only self-funded user group in the General Fund of Alaska and awarded grooming dollars for the Snowtrac program as they are received by every one of us that register our sleds in the state registration program.
Times have changed, costs have gone up and we can't keep providing the kind of service so many of us are accustomed to at $10 each per winter. If we do, we're going to have keep cutting back on grooming like we are now and noone likes that according to all the complaints lately.
Think about it....$20 per winter for more groomed trails than you can ride on a tank of gas? That's pretty darned cheap too !

House Bill 23...…………... These guys want everyone else to pay for their comfort, on their trails! How many have ever turned a track on one of their trails, from around here? They consistently misrepresent how the program works! :devil:
FST needs to aggressively fight these increased TAXES! I'm tired of fighting this battle! :wall: :wall: :wall: :bangin:

They deleted my posts and others posts from their facebook page, that disagreed with them. :devil: The Curry Ridge Riders are no friend to snowmachiners from outside their little world. :evil:
