Two bills have been signed by California Gov. Jerry Brown that permanently reauthorize California’s Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program. California Senate Bills 159 and 249 were approved by the state legislature in recent weeks.
California’s Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program was established in 1971, according to SEMA Action Network. 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.
