Senate Bill 1100, that would have increased the Off Highway Vehicle weight to 3,500 lbs passed the Arizona House of Representatives on May 15th 2023 and was transmitted to Governor Katie Hobbs, where she quickly vetoed the bill.

SB1100 Moves ahead in House Committees
The new bill in the Arizona Legislature that will refine Arizona’s definition of OHV is moving forward through House committees with the full support of House Republicans. The bill will increase the state’s threshold weight that defines an OHV from 2,500 lbs to 3,500 lbs. Arizona Backcountry Explorers is concerned that OHV regulations designed for UTVs will be applied to Jeeps and Pickup trucks that weigh under 3,500 lbs.
