On May 31, 2012, the California Assembly Budget Subcommittee #3 approved the "Sustainable Parks Proposal" to shift up to $31 million from the OHV Trust Fund in order to pay for the State Parks budget shortfall. This measure was passed by the Senate Budget Subcommittee #2 on May 23, 2012.
This represents a broken promise as OHV enthusiasts had been assured that user funded programs that take NO money from the General Fund, like the OHV division, would be protected.
The law provides that the OHV division of State Parks shall be equal to other State Parks, and that budget impacts should be equally shared, yet the State OHV Parks have had millions of dollars taken over the last 3 years.
This is tantamount to placing an additional tax on OHV users that provides no benefit to those who pay. It is vital that you click on the Take Action link below to weigh-in with your members of the Assembly and Senate to encourage them to stop this raid of the OHV Trust Fund!
