Desparately Seeking Sponsors! Cabin Fee Act of 2009

In the next few weeks, Representative Doc Hastings (R-WA), Ranking Republican on the House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee, will introduce in Congress the Cabin Fee Act (CFA) that has been developed by cabin owners to replace CUFFA and establish a much more equitable and reasonable basis for determining cabin permit fees. We believe the following Representatives, who have many cabin owners in their Districts, should be willing to join Representative Hastings in introducing this historic legislation.

Cabin Owners and your Families, please make every effort to communicate with your Representative (and any others you may know) and urge him or her to join in introducing the Cabin Fee Act.
Your Representative's staff can contact Jim Streeter, Minority Staff Director of the Natural Resources Committee, at 202.226.2311, for information about the new bill and when it will be introduced. As always, let us know about your efforts and what you hear from your Representative.

Though we still have much work to do, let's hope that this is the year that results in a long-term solution to cabin fees. Many continuing thanks to you, your contacts and your communication network for getting us to this point.
