Act Now to Protect California's Wild Places from Off Road Vehicle Abuse!

The California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Commission provides crucial policy guidance for the management of off-road vehicles (ORVs) on public lands in California. It also provides an important forum for public input on the state's ORV Program. As ORV abuse has exploded in recent years, the Commission has worked tirelessly to provide essential funds for law enforcement and restoration grants. These grants have helped to restore damaged areas, to protect pristine places from being harmed and to confine ORV use to the most appropriate locations.

Unfortunately, our public lands are threatened by ill-conceived proposals from off-roaders and the Schwarzenegger Administration to eliminate this important commission. Dismantling the commission would leave California's streams, deserts, forests and other valuable public and private lands at risk from increased ORV abuse.

We need you to stand up for California's wild places!

Let your Assembly member know that you support the renewal of the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Commission.

Call, write, email or fax your state legislator today!

Here is a sample letter you can send:

Dear Assembly Member [Last name of your state legislator],

As a California voter and a constituent I urge you to support the renewal of the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Commission.

The Commission helps promote responsible off-road vehicle recreation while preserving our public lands and waterways. I support the Commission for the following reasons:

- The Commission provides transparency, public input and legislative oversight for California's off-road vehicle recreation program.

- The Commission has successfully protected and restored many of California's sensitive forests, deserts and streams from off-road vehicle abuse.

- The Commission oversees important law enforcement programs that protect local communities from ORV noise, air pollution, property damage and trespassing.

Please help protect our local communities, water quality and public lands by supporting the renewal of the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Commission.

Sincerely,
