MD DNR better get on this ASAP.

From: AMA News & Notes - August, 2012‏

Washington, D.C.: The Recreational Trails Program (RTP), which had faced possible extinction, has been saved in a congressionally approved transportation bill. The spending authorization bill, "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century," known as Map-21, includes $85 million a year through fiscal 2014 for the trails program, which provides funds to the states to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both non-motorized and motorized recreational trail uses.
The RTP is an assistance program of the U.S. Transportation Department's Federal Highway Administration. The program benefits hiking, bicycling, in-line skating, equestrian use, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, off-road motorcycling, ATV riding, four-wheel driving, or using other off-road motorized vehicles. The measure now goes to President Obama to be signed into law.
