Much to our surprise and amazement located in Governor Brown’s budget for the upcoming year, there on page 8 is his language on repayment of funds borrowed from reserve funds of special categories.
The Off Highway Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR) is working to identify all of the funds that have been borrowed over the past 25 years. The preliminary estimate is in the neighborhood of $160 MILLION.
The schedule of payment will be outlined in the final budget.
This effort couldn’t have been accomplished without a strong team effort. The Deputy Director of the OHMVR Division Chris Conlin, the Division staff, our Legislative advocates Terry McHale is a huge part of this team effort.
They will continue to work on getting these funds back to where they belong.
