Revenue derived from OHV permits and registration should be utilized exclusively for OHV education, enforcement, signage, trail construction, restoration and maintenance.
Shrinking budgets and increased demand for state funding has left programs paid for directly by sportsmen or rider dollars in the cross hairs of would be budget raiders. We believe strongly that money collected from OHV users in the form of registration fees should go right back to OHV programs. This includes safety and education, law enforcement, trail maintenance, restoration, and building.
When users fees are diverted away from their specified purpose, those of us who pay into the fund are unfairly penalized.
More importantly, the loss of user funding for OHV programs negatively impacts programs for youth, planning, education and restoration.
We are committed to making sure OHV funds are used to educate our youth, enforce OHV laws, and protect and restore habitat important to wildlife.
