Tehama County Supes warn governor on OHV funding
By RICH GREENE-DN Staff Writer

Tehama County Supervisors authorized Chairman Bob Williams to send a letter to Gov. Jerry Brown Tuesday voicing their opposition to a plan to divert money from the Off Highway Vehicle Trust Fund to the state parks' budget shortfall.

The reappropriation of funds moved through the Assembly Budget Subcommittee No. 3 on Resources and Transportation as part of the Sustainable Parks Proposal, which would help keep open a series of state parks scheduled for closure.

This action will virtually eliminate the trust fund over a period of three years, adversely affecting operations and maintenance of multiple public off highway vehicle recreation areas in California, a staff report reads.

The trust fund is financed by a share of state fuel taxes.

Elimination of the program will subject 27 million acres of public lands in California to the perils of unmanaged and unchecked OHV use, eventually leading to increased risk to the users and possible closure of trails, Williams' letter reads.
