The House of Representatives, by a unanimous bi-partisan vote, passed HR 1913, a bill to re-open our beloved Clear Creek Management Area to OHV’s.
As you know the CCMA was “temporarily” closed in 2008 with the stroke of one pen. Now, nine years later and taking an act of congress to reverse that order, we are now a few steps away from getting a nationally known premiere riding area re-opened.
The next step is to the Senate and rumors are favorable. Then on to the President. Most of you know the Presidents sons ride motorcycles. KTM is their brand……
Hopefully this will help……………

The California OHV Program is a nationally recognized program that is in serious jeopardy with Senate Bill 249 looming. If enacted this Bill would gut the OHV funding and essentially kill the OHV program. So we need to TAKE ACTION NOW!
Currently the OHV Program is self-funded, taking no money out of the General Fund. The OHV Program receives it’s funding through a small percentage of gas tax, State Vehicle Recreation Areas (SVRAs) entrance fees and vehicle registrations (green and red stickers). SB 249, if enacted would direct all that money to the general fund and California’s only self-sustaining user funded program would fail to get the funding to continue.
There are lobby groups and several OHV Friendly organizations working to fight this bill but they NEED OUR HELP! We ALL NEED to contact our Senators and Assembly Representatives to voice our concerns and ask that they not pass this bill.
Two ways to act (do both!!):
Contact your Senator and Assemblyman directly by email or phone and ask them to please not support this bill that would devastate the OHV Program.
And use the AMA letter generator by going HERE
WE wouldn’t keep pestering you but this is one of the most devastating bills to ever be presented, a bill that would kill the only Self Funded program that has worked for years in California. Imagine Prairie City SVRA or Carnegie or even your favorite riding area in the national forest Closed due to lack of funds.
Please ACT NOW!
SB-249 IS A BAD BILL, AND MUST BE CRUSHED!
Many of you may have never seen a Senate Floor vote, and this is one segment of Senate Floor Discussion prior to a vote on a bill. As you may know, EVERY OHV organization in the State is FIGHTING to kill SB-249, a nasty bill that will cause harm to our OHV program.
D36 OPPOSES this bill.
Big kudos to Sen Anderson for his comments.
Video is about 7 minutes long, and LAO encourages you to watch this. This is YOUR OHV program……….
HELP US DEFEAT IT!
Please tell your friends in OHV to watch this…………..
To: All Members of District 36 We need you help NOW to stop a Senate Bill that will cause serious and great harm to our OHV Program. It is imperative that we contact our State Senators TODAY – and voice 100% opposition to SB-249.
A quick access link is included in release attached. All you do is enter your zip code, and YOUR senator will come up. A simple phone call is all that is needed.
Call, and say please vote NO on SB-249………..
Please take 1 minute of your time to Protect YOUR program……………..
