California’s Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program was established in 1971. California OHV user taxes and fees directly fund OHV management and facility maintenance. This self-sustaining program doesn’t require general fund taxes.
- The OHMVR program provides funds to local, state and federal agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit entities for OHV management on both federal and state lands.
- OHV use contributes an estimated $20 billion to the California economy and provides high-quality sustainable recreation to nearly 6 million OHV enthusiasts.
- A.B. 1077 would extend the OHMVR program indefinitely; otherwise, the program is scheduled to expire at the end of 2017.
- A.B. 1077 would help protect a program that has been identified worldwide as a successful model for OHV management that supports local economies and benefits conservation and our natural resources.
Overview: Legislation (A.B. 1077) has been introduced to make permanent the California’s Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program. Currently, the program is slated to expire at the end of 2017.
