Friends of Jawbone is happy to report that on October 3, 2017, Governor Brown signed state legislation into law the renews and makes permanent California's Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation program. This year-long push to reauthorize the OHV program and to make it permanent proved successful because the Governor and members of the State Senate and Assembly heard from thousands of OHV enthusiasts like you. Such an accomplishment would never have occurred if it weren't for your letters, telephone calls, emails and contributions.
“Members’ calls to their legislators worked,” said Amy Granat, Managing Director of CORVA, the California Off Road Vehicle Association. “The off-road vehicle community was able to convince the author of the bill and legislative leaders to work with off-road representatives on Senate Bill 249 and companion bill Senate Bill 159.”
