OHV safety bill I worked on signed at AZ Capitol

PHOENIX -- I'll be at Governor Napolitano's office at the State Capitol today for the signing of the Arizona OHV bill, which will help improve safety, law enforcement, recreation and the environment. The new law and rules will start Jan 1 09.

As part of my job as ecologist and southwest director of PEER, I worked in a bipartisan manner to help support and pass this bill last year. Rep. Jerry Weiers (R-Glendale) and others worked hard to bring together many diverse interests for a compromise bill.

I'll be out deer hunting later this week, on foot, and hope to not see too many ATVs, which can wreck the hunt.
