As the dust settles over the State Senate vote on SB 249, a few things are becoming clear. First, that the bill passed with basic minimum votes (3 - NO and 3 - Abstain from the Democrats) indicates this a noted issue and some elected representatives listened to their constituents. This is the OHMVR program praised by former Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell as 'world class'. The same program praised by Department of Parks Director Lisa Mangat as 'world class'.
On behalf of other OHV reps engaged in fight for the renewal of the program, thank-you for your contributions, calls and letters to your elected representatives. They made a difference.
