This bill was just passed yesterday https://leginfo.legi...=201720180SB249. For those of you who remember the fight for Carnegie, this bill is fully supported by the same environmental groups that tried to shut it down and now that it has passed through one legislative group, they are closer to being able to shut down not only Carnegie, but all the OHVs. It still needs to go through some more legal channels and then on to the governor, but if you're concerned at all, please pay attention to how this unfolds.

the following is part of paragraph (2)

 

Fund and, commencing November 1, 2017, requires the portion of those moneys from a $0.12 per gallon increase, and future inflation adjustments from that increase, to be transferred to the State Parks and Recreation Fund, to be used for state parks, off-highway vehicle programs, or boating programs.  

 

Why boating programs????

"OR boating programs"....oh wait, there are none except inspections (which will start having a fee, watch)....

 

Ok, not money needed for that.  Wait, lets kill the OHV...so that money is gone, and we can't balance the budget so Parks will be closed...

 

Oh, good, more money for a train.

They now have a boating safety card that's becoming mandatory (of course, with a fee), so there's also that.

This bill is a true poison pill, but it likely will sail through. :(

Anything that is labeled "protecting the environment" here does if even was to harm others.

I didn't read the text of the article but boating funds often go to building access in the form of ramps and such.

We have a new insider, Matt with the black LR4 works for the state senate and is really worried this bill will set precedent for raiding funds with specific intended purpose.

See gas tax for example.

Here's the reply I got from Scott Wiener.

 

 

Thank you for your message regarding Senate Bill 249. I understand that this is an important issue for you, and I greatly appreciate you voicing your concern. I voted for this bill in the Senate, and support it moving forward. SB 249 has successfully passed the Senate, and is now in the Assembly for consideration. 

 
California’s Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Program, which helps ensure that off-highway vehicle recreation is done in a sustainable and safe manner, is set to sunset at the end of 2017. The Legislature should reauthorize this program in a way that continues to ensure safe off-highway vehicle recreation while also protecting public resources and cultural sites. 
  
SB 249 accomplishes three objectives: it extends the sunset date for the OHMVR Program until January 1, 2023, it strengthens environmental protection measures, and it better integrates the Program with the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR). SB 249 seeks to accomplish these objectives by: clearly delineating resource protection and conservation requirements, creating a Science Advisory Team, and allocating funding sources and improving oversight to ensure program goals are aligned with DPR’s mission to protect the environment and create opportunity for outdoor recreation. 
  
Again, thank you for voicing your concern, and, while we may not agree on this one issue, I hope you continue your involvement. For more information about the provisions of SB 249, and to stay up to date on the status of the bill, please visit: https://leginfo.legi...201720180SB249
