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.
SB1393 | Reallocating the OHV fund to establish County Sheriff OHV Safety Fund
Republican Senator Sine Kerr has introduced a bill that will reallocate the Arizona Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) fund. As it is, 30% of the OHV fund goes to the Arizona Highway User Revenue Fund administered by the Arizona Department of Transportation. The new bill will add ARS 28-1182 to reallocate this 30% and establish the Off Highway Vehicle Law Enforcement Safety Fund.
