Congressional Legislation Creates 6 National Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Areas in the California Desert
Off-Roaders Will Have Access to Over 60,000 Additional Acres if it Becomes Law
A SAN-supported bill, the “California Minerals, Off-Road Recreation, and Conservation Act” (HR 3668), has been introduced in the U.S. Congress to create five new National Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Recreation Areas in the California Desert (Spangler Hills, El Mirage, Rasor, Dumont Dunes, and Stoddard Valley) in addition to designating Johnson Valley as a National OHV Recreation Area and expanding it by nearly 20,000 acres.
Please contact your U.S. Representative Immediately to Request Support for HR 3668
*With the threat of President Obama circumventing Congress and designating three national monuments in the California desert, the “California Minerals, Off-Road Recreation, and Conservation Act” (HR 3668) offers a balanced approach to protecting, managing, and using the desert and forest areas in San Bernardino and Imperial Counties.
*HR 3668 does not increase federal land ownership and prevents the president from designating national monuments within OHV and Special Management areas created and expanded in this legislation.
*HR 3668 preserves a total of 300,000 acres of the California desert for off-roading and expands OHV recreation areas by over 60,000 acres.
*HR 3668 expands the Johnson Valley OHV Recreation Area by nearly 20,000 acres and provides it National status.
*HR 3688 affords additional protections to OHV users, ensures that OHV recreational areas cannot be closed administratively, and it creates the first system of National OHV Recreation Areas in the U.S.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact your U.S. Representative immediately to request their support for HR 3668.
