HB 2443 a fair start to mitigate off-road damages
PHOENIX -- Finally a decent move toward off-road vehicle reform being pushed by off-roader State Rep. Weiers (R-Glendale). Many dems are also in support of HB 2443, as is the Sierra Club.
If this bill passes, it'll be critical to ensure the copper sticker ORV fund is used for management, law enforcement, signing, education, and restoration, and not to expand ORV use or areas. This should be made clear in the bill language.
The final bill should also include provisions for stiff fines and ORV seizure for repeat and extreme offenders.
