Update on the Studded Tire Ballot Initiative

Jeff Bernards came to an AROW meeting years ago to gain support on his effort to ban studded tires in Oregon. Turns out we waste a lot of money re-paving our roadways because of the unnecessary use of metal-studded tires. Jeff and a cadre of volunteers set forward a communications and fundraising campaign to help end this era of wastefulness.

While a large fundraising goal stands in the way of getting on the 2012 ballot, there is hope that State Represenatives in Salem who will face significant budget shortfalls in 2013 will be inspired to take up the appropriate legislation.
