For the second consecutive year, federal government statistics demonstrated that outdoor recreation is a key driver of the national economy and communities around the country. The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) report found that outdoor recreation in 2017 supported 5.2 million jobs and accounted for $778 billion in annual economic impact. Some of the largest outdoor recreation activities include motorized recreation, boating and fishing, RV’ing, biking, hunting, camping and skiing.

Washington, D.C. (January 26, 2020) –The Coalition for Recreational Trails (CRT) expressed appreciation for bipartisan Congressional efforts which moved the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) forward recently and offer real hope that additional federal non-highway recreational fuel taxes will soon provide better and safer trails. Led by U.S. Senators Shaheen, Risch, Klobuchar, Burr, Daines and Van Hollen, Hill champions of RTP succeeded in including preparation of an estimate of non-highway recreational fuel usage to facilitate Congressional determination of future RTP funding levels in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s FY2020 budget.
The Coalition for Recreational Trails (CRT) calls on all trail organizations and trail enthusiasts to take action immediately to continue and to expand the Recreational Trails Program (RTP), the national trails assistance program that aids all trail activities nationwide through use of federal non-highway recreational fuel taxes.
A huge step occurred late last year when the Congress instructed the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop a timely estimate of the fuel tax generated through non-highway recreational activities in its FY2020 budget and included RTP reauthorization in key Senate legislation creating the next-gen surface transportation program. Now, action in the House of Representatives is underway and underscores the bipartisan and coast-to-coast support RTP enjoys in the Congress.
