CODE RED ALERT - Stop SB 249 in Senate Vote Today

STAT ACTION REQUIRED this AM – Senate Vote on SB 249 is today

The Recreation HQ is firing up its CODE RED Alert System and is asking you to take just a minute or two this a.m. to contact your own CA State Senator and ask them to VOTE NO or replacement of the “urgency” which was taken out of the current version of SB 249 as a way to marginalize state senators who support the current CA OHV Program.

OHV Community Alert to Senate Floor (for additional info and topics)


Bullet Points:

·         Ask them to vote NO on SB 249 or replacement of the “urgency” to keep the bill in the Senate for further discussions

·         SB 249 would force the complete rewrite of OHV regulations that would halt any grants going to county law enforcement, conservation/restoration efforts, and safety programs for a period of at least one year or the grants program might not even exist in any meaningful capacity.

·         OHV is an important multi-billion dollar per year economic benefit to the state and local economy

·         The OHV Program is a national model of environmentally sound recreation

·         The current OHV program was created in a bipartisan manner under the leadership of Senator Steinberg in 2007. The OHV program provides critical funding for law enforcement, search and rescue, conservation, and protection of natural and cultural resources.

Please do this today!

  1. I don't live in CA. but I shared it in FB to all my peeps. =)

  2. Please vote NO on SB 249 or replacement of the “urgency” to keep the bill in the Senate for further discussions. This will impact too many families that utilize this space.

  3. I would urge you to vote no on SB249 for a lot of reasons, it seams unreasonable to do away with a program that provides for recreation, law enforcement, conservation, maintenance and not to mention economic benefits to small and rural communities.
    Thank you for considering my thoughts

  4. please vote no on SB249 and keep the ohv program going,thousands of families enjoy are great trails everyday in ca.

  5. A vote of NO on SB249 PLEASE. The program is doing great as, plus it also provides economic benefits to the state .

  6. PLEASE! Vote NO on SB 249.
    Thank you.

  7. If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Please leave the current program in place.

  8. Please protest this horrible idea . Vote NO and ask your state representative now to respond . Wealthy land owners in Calif already pay NO property taxes on land held in the WILLIAMSON ACT. Calif is nuts
