Collaboration/Engagement/Commitment Reflected in CA DOT OHV Fuel Tax Report

QWR believes successful OHV programs are the result of substantive collaboration between agency leadership and the user community.

QWR wants to commend the California Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) for engaging with the OHV community at various OHMVR Commission meetings in Northern and Southern California over the last couple of years.

That engagement also included a number of OHV-related Parks Transformation Team hearings where DPR Director, Lisa Mangat, and OHV commissioners gathered input on just how important the CA OHV Program is to millions of recreationists, federal partners, county law enforcement, rural economies, and conservation efforts.

QWR believes that two-way collaboration is acknowledged by the administration’s strong support for continued funding for the CA OHV Program as stated in the Cover Letter for the CA Department of Transportation’s Report: “Assessing the State Fuel Tax Paid on Gasoline Used for Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Recreation.”

QWR also believes the Administration supports full funding for the CA OHV program in both SB 1 and the Governor’s Budget May Revise.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to engage with decision-makers.
