AB 1086 (Bauer-Kahan) Off-highway vehicular recreation: Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area: Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area
(As Amended September 6, 2019)
AB 1086 is in the Senate Natural Resources & Water Committee – This is a gut-and-amend bill and is very similar to SB 767 (Glazer) which was held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee on August 30 and became a 2-year bill.
In addition to the policy objections to the measure, we are distressed that such an underhanded process is being attempted with this bill with one week to go in the Legislature. It is disenfranchising to the many stakeholders that would be impacted by such actions and is not representative governance.
The Off Road Vehicle Legislative Coalition is comprised of several statewide or regional organizations of OHV enthusiasts. Our coalition has reviewed AB 1086 and strongly opposes this bill that would deny opportunities for local Bay Area residents, including the elderly and disabled and motorized recreation enthusiasts.
This is the last week of the legislative session, ending this Friday, September 13, and bills can move very quickly. It is important that you contact the following IMMEDIATELY and urge them to vote “NO” on AB 1086:
916 319 2063
