2018 Candidate Survey

Candidates Speak Out on Snowmobiling

What happens at the legislature is extremely important to the future of the 22,000+ mile snowmobile trail system in Minnesota. Although 96% of the work to prepare and groom the trails is done by volunteer clubs across the state through a grant-in-aid system, it is the legislature that determines how much money is appropriated to pay for the administration, enforcement and the grants for the trails from the Snowmobile Trails and Enforcement dedicated account and passes legislation that positively or negatively affects our sport.

The Snowmobile Trails and Enforcement Account is funded by you, the snowmobiler. Your registration fees, out of state trail sticker fees and the percentage of gas tax which is attributed to snowmobile use go into this account. MnUSA has been at the legislature for over 40 years to be sure the snowmobilers' funds are spent on snowmobile related business. To this end, MnUSA has surveyed the candidates this year to get their commitment on the importance of snowmobiling to Minnesota, to the Snowmobile Trails and Enforcement dedicated account, to the amount of gas tax allocated to the snowmobile dedicated fund, the amount of the allocated funds that will go to the clubs through grant-in-aid, the use of Legacy Funds to benefit snowmobile trails and trail crossings for rail developments.

A great number of candidates have responded and we are honored and gratified by the number and thoughfulness of the responses.

Please check back for updated responses.
