For months, a coalition of off-highway vehicle recreation associations (Coalition) representing off-road recreation enthusiasts throughout the state of California, have worked on legislation to provide reauthorization of the highly successful Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program that is administered by the Department of Parks and Recreation.

The State Assembly recently passed amended legislation that provides permanent status for the program. The State Senate concurred and the legislation was submitted to the Governor for signature. On October 3, 2017, the Governor signed legislation making the OHMVR program permanent.

The California OHMVR Program is facing a serious threat of having its funding diverted. The OHMVR Program is user funded through registration fees and gas tax funds for fuel used in OHV recreation.

The gas tax funding is targeted to be diverted away from the OHMVR Program. The result will be NO funds to support the SVRAs and many trails on BLM and Forest Service managed lands.
