Join CORVA in supporting AB 232/ sponsored by Assemblymember Gallagher and help bring back equity for off-road recreationists who visit other states.

Contact the legislators listed to express your support.

Here is a list of the Transportation Committee members along with their city of residence and state capitol phone number. If you live or work near one of these committee members, that would be a good place to start. The bill is AB 232 by Assemblyman Gallagher. This bill will simply adjust California's long-held policy of reciprocity for OHV registrations vis a vis other states. Until last year every state that had an OHV registration system would honor the registration from residents of other states when they visited to recreate in another state. Last year Arizona, Utah and Idaho began changing their policy and began to require any non-resident of their state to first obtain an out-of-state OHV visitor permit for their vehicle before they could operate an OHV in the state. In other words, they are dropping the reciprocity that has ALWAYS existed for motor vehicle registrations between states. A California OHV registration (green sticker) will no longer be accepted as legal in those 3 states. This bill will simply change California's OHV statute to continue to allow reciprocity ONLY for residents of those states that recognize CA OHV registration as legal in their state. Visitors from states that do not recognize the CA green sticker will be required to purchase a CA OHV Visitor Permit in order to operate their OHV in CA. Visitors from states that continue to recognize the CA OHV registration will continue to be able to operate in CA with only their home state OHV permit.

Here is the list of Transportation Committee members we need to contact, and contact your own Assemblymember as well.
