"Arizona State Budget session now under consideration, members are searching for funds that can be cut or redirected to meet 2015-2016 budget. As many of you know Arizona is a fiscal negative state, meaning a balanced budget each year, so therefore funds from one agency can be moved to support a negative agency .

What this means is Arizona State Parks OHV funds are in jeopardy of being taken for other state projects & new motorized trails are put in limbo for a time, things like proposed funds of new trails, work & maintenance on existing trails & OHV areas like Hayfield Draw, Boulders, Alto Pit could be shut down or put hold until further funds can be allocated to complete these on going projects .

We work hard to develop working relationships w/ National Parks (NPS) & Forest Service (USFS) personnel & agency leaders but as we know people move on or up, retire, & such & our quest starts all over again & everything we have attained is for not.

If we want to keep our existing OHV funds & projects moving forward we need to ban together & call your House & Senate Represenetive to voice our concerns, a phone call. E-mail, written letter or personal visit can make the difference & help save a lot of hard work & dreams of expanded motorized trails & recreation in the state of Arizona.

It is, IMHO, that is also time for all OHV people to think about a statewide collation of OHV projects & concerns for the state, & consider the formation of OHV & Recreation Political Action Committee (PAC) remember there is strength in numbers & our voice need to be heard."

The above post was copied from the ADVrider forums. Even if you don't pay for the OHV tag it still affects all of us so please take a minute to call, write, or send a short e-mail stating your concerns about redirecting theses OHV funds.

If you are not sure who your rep is you can find the info here.

We all voted these reps into office so let them know how to represent us, the people.
