Can you afford to lose $21 Million?
If not then please read on and take Two Minutes to make three phone calls
Senators Simitian and Evans want to take $21 million of your OHV Trust Funds to prop up State Parks. The real person behind this problem in the first place is State Parks Director Ruth Coleman!
They are doing this in order to bail out the State Park budget due to Director Coleman's failed leadership. These are the Green Sticker fees and gas taxes that you pay specifically for the OHV Trust Fund.
If we loose that money it could eliminate trail maintenance crews. WIthout maintenance there could be trail closures, as well as increased environmental impacts.
Even if you do not enjoy OHV recreation many of the trails you use probably have benefited from OHV Trust Fund, so all people who enjoy trail recreation or care about public lands stand to lose if they steal the OHV Trust Fund.
If your OHV trust Fund money is taken then all the state OHV grant funding for areas like CC Camp, Cow Mountain, Stonyford, Georgetown, Hollister, Foresthill, Shasta-Chappie, Metcalf, pretty much all BLM and Forest Service OHV areas, will be eliminated.
Please call or email the Director and her bosses the Secretary and the Governor and tell them:
"Don't Take Our OHV Trust Funds". Ruth Coleman hasn't exhibited the leadership necessary to save State Parks from closures, she needs to step down and let someone better take over. Instead of taking funds from our OHV Trust Fund, State Parks needs to look at their issues and solve their own problems without hurting the OHV program.
The OHV Trust Fund is a program that works and needs to remain intact.
