BlueRibbon-Coalition-NEW-Logo-6-21-16Editor’s Note: The BlueRibbon Coalition sent out a note regarding the current battle over OHV access in California. See the details and notes on what you can do to help below.

BRC believes one of the most critical access issues in 2017 is for CA OHV recreationists to engage in the battle to reauthorize the current OHV program (SB742). This is a very complex legislative process. The fight will occur in stages over the next few months.  Anti-access groups are hard at work to gut the current program via introduction of SB 249. (Thanks for sending in your “oppose” SB 249 letters in Phase One!!!)

Res 44, a measure also passed by the House a few weeks ago, to roll back the public process and progressive management on the 245 million acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. Congress used the Congressional Review Act (CRA), an arcane rule that allows Congress to roll back agency regulations within 60 days, to repeal BLM Planning 2.0. Planning 2.0 was a widely-lauded effort to modernize the 30 year-old rules currently governing land planning on BLM land and give it a better public process.
