Trails bill => Call to Action
==>> Contact your state Representative today (through email or a phone call), and URGE THEM TO SUPPORT H.3121 BY CO-SPONSORING IT!
- Trails have taken off in our state, and momentum is building to build public - private partnerships, through tax credits and publicly funded grants from all levels.
- Tax credits for Trail Easements, H.3121 is sponsored by Rep. Hyde of Spartanburg. This bill simply gives property owners a state income tax credit if they agree to a trail easement. Easements are voluntary and necessary to patch together a trail corridor. Trails contribute to safer active transportation, economic development for communities and regions, and the eco-tourism that provides a small economic engine for some small communities. The impetus of this bill came from trail building efforts by Partners for Active Living in Spartanburg; the bill was refined by Upstate Forever; and it is supported by trail advocates statewide.
