Letters needed in opposition to SB-249

From John Stewart, Cal4Wheel Natural Resources Consultant

The OHMVR Division has administered the OHV program for the last 35 years using its team of highly-skilled environmental scientists, law enforcement officers, recreation planners, trail specialists, and grant administrators to partner with federal land agencies, county sheriffs, conservation groups, and OHV organizations in providing California residents and tourists from throughout the world with access to world-class motorized and non-motorized outdoor recreation opportunities on public lands. The OHMVR Program is completely self-funded and does not rely on any General Fund support.

Cal4Wheel views the proposed legislation (SB 249) as a very punitive bill that ignores the exceptional value this program has delivered to California in ensuring that quality OHV recreation opportunities exist in this state and are managed and controlled in a manner that emphasizes environmental sustainability and protection, as well as public safety and local government engagement. The current bill language can best be described as punitive and destructive to what has become a nationally acclaimed success story for delivering quality recreational opportunities while maintaining the strictest environmental standards.

Proposed legislation SB-249 drifts from the original intent of the program and would lead to its ultimate demise. The proposed legislation contains many fallacies and misguided priorities.

We would like to ask everyone who lives within the districts of the Members of the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee (listed below) to send letters asking to OPPOSE SB-249.

An option exists for people to send an email with the noted text (about 1650 characters), or leave the email on the members' Facebook wall.

Dear Honorable (Assembly Member or Senator):

I am a constituent of yours and would like to introduce you to the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Program (OHMVR) Program. It is very important to more than 6 million residents with an estimated $20 billion added to the state economy.

The current OHMVR Program has been in existence since 1971 (Chappi-Z’Berg Act), has been a great success, and hailed as a national model providing for a statewide system of managed OHV recreational opportunities. The Program assures that quality recreational opportunities remain available for future generations by providing education, conservation, and law enforcement efforts that balance OHV recreation impact with programs that conserve and protect cultural and natural resources.

The Program is funded by user license/registration fees and gas tax revenue based on fuel used off-highway for recreation purposes. NO GENERAL FUNDS are appropriated for the OHMVR Program.

I am concerned with the language of SB-249.

The bill would require these fuel taxes to be transferred to the State Parks and Recreation Fund and allocated for the purposes of the department, including support for state parks and the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Program, diluting the quality program that currently exists.

I hope you will be a strong voice for the OHMVR Program and OPPOSE SB-249.

I would be happy to meet with you or a staff member to discuss the OHMVR Program and its future and importance. You may also reach out to our legislative advocate, Terry McHale with Arron Reed and Associates.

I look forward to your response.

Letter Contents & Instructions

Please copy and paste the below information and send an email to your elected representative.

Most legislators maintain a social media (Facebook) presence.

Also, please copy and paste the below information and post it to the Facebook Wall of your elected representative.

Dear Honorable (Assembly Member):

I am asking for you to support Assembly Bill 1077 by Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell, which reauthorizes the unique and heralded California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Program.

The OHMVR Program assures that quality recreational opportunities remain available for future generations by providing for maintenance, education, conservation, and enforcement that balance OHMVR's recreation impact with programs that monitor, conserve and protect cultural and natural resources.

AB 1077 best honors the intent of the 1971 Chappie-Z’Berg Act and the subsequent diverse stakeholder process in 2007 that led to historic bi-partisan legislation (SB 742-Steinberg) that reauthorized the current California OHMVR Program.

Managed by the Department of Parks and Recreation OHMVR Division and Commission, the current OHMVR program is often cited as the national Gold Standard in modern environmentally-sound motorized recreation.

At a public meeting in Sacramento on July 19, 2016, California Department of Parks and Recreation Director Mangat stated: "This OHV program is the national model. It's not just the great program in the State of California, it is the national model, and we recognize that.”

The OHMVR Division has administered this program for the last 35 years, is completely self-funded and does not rely on any General Fund support.

I urge you to SUPPORT AB-1077 which reauthorizes the unique and heralded state OHV program. The only program change being proposed is the removal of the sunset clause which would make the program permanent, similar to the specially funded Division of Boating and Waterways and all other divisions within the Department of Parks and Recreation.
