Sen. Nofs offers snowmobile update newsletter

LANSING—To help ensure that snowmobile enthusiasts taking to the trails across the state have all the facts they need to enjoy a safe season, Sen. Mike Nofs is offering a 2011 Snowmobile and Safety Guide newsletter filled with information on issues affecting those who enjoy Michigan’s winter wonderland.

“Snowmobiling is not only an excellent way for families to get out and enjoy Michigan's great outdoors together, but it is also a boon to our state's economy,” said Nofs, R-Battle Creek. “While the effects of the economy have taken a toll, snowmobiling still brings millions of dollars into Michigan each year. I hope that this newsletter can add to the enjoyment of both snowmobile enthusiasts and business owners alike.”

Nofs said the newsletter contains updates on legislation affecting snowmobilers, information on where to ride on Michigan's network of more than 6,000 miles of groomed trails, health and safety tips for operators, and ways for constituents to provide feedback.

The 2011 Snowmobile and Safety Guide is available by visiting the lawmaker’s website at and clicking the Newsletters link.
Residents of the 19th Senate District without Internet access can obtain a free copy of the newsletter by contacting Nofs’ office toll free at (888) 962-6275.
