OHV Community Supports CA Governor’s Effort To Review Park Fund
SACRAMENTO, CA (July 20, 2012) – The BlueRibbon Coalition, a national trail-based recreation group, and the California Off-Highway Vehicle Community welcomes the quick response from Governor Jerry Brown to investigate financial irregularities and a hidden slush fund within State Parks.
The OHV community is disappointed, but not the least bit surprised that the problem exists.
OHV enthusiasts have made repeated efforts over the past couple of years to draw attention to the theft of OHV funds under the guise that dire conditions are forcing the closure of recreational opportunities in order to save what management has described as distressed quiet parks.
Motorized recreationists are asking that the OHV program, a national model and one with absolute fiscal clarity, be restored completely.
Something stinks in Sacramento…
The OHV program is the most successful division in State Parks and responsibly provides recreational opportunities to millions of Californians. OHV recreation is also critical to the rural economy of our state.
