From our friends at AMA..... U.S. Rep. Paul Cook (R-Calif.) has introduced H.R. 4371, which would designate the Johnson Valley National Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area.

This bill, introduced April 2, would make California’s Johnson Valley the nation’s first national OHV recreation area.

Please click the "Take Action" link and then use the form at the bottom of the page to send your congressional representative an email urging support for H.R. 4371.

According to Cook, “it will show that Johnson Valley is of national significance, raising its profile for economic purposes and within the federal government, which owns the land.”

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management estimates that the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area generates $71 million in economic activity annually. The annual King of Hammers event alone brings in more than 30,000 people.

Last year, Cook – working with the AMA -- was instrumental in negotiating an agreement between local stakeholders, the U.S. Marine Corps and the BLM to keep Johnson Valley open for OHV use.

The agreement to keep Johnson Valley open to OHV enthusiasts was included as part of the National Defense Authorization Act.
