Yesterday, the House Subcommittee on Federal Lands held a hearing on two very important OHV-related legislative initiatives. Those two bills are H.R. 1838, the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act and H.R. 3668, the California Minerals, Off-Road Recreation, and Conservation Act. BRC urges its members, partners and colleagues to watch the video from yesterday's hearing on H.R. 1838 (reopening Clear Creek) and H.R. 3668 (protecting OHV recreation in So Cal).

Legislative Hearing on H.R. 1838 and H.R. 3668

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

Yesterday, the House Subcommittee on Federal Lands held a hearing on two very important OHV-related legislative initiatives.  Those two bills are H.R. 1838, the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act and H.R. 3668, the California Minerals, Off-Road Recreation, and Conservation Act.

BRC urges its members, partners and colleagues to watch the video from yesterday's hearing on H.R. 1838 (reopening Clear Creek) and  H.R. 3668 (protecting OHV recreation in So Cal).  It is well worth the time to view your government at work on issues that are important to the access community.

There are many important topics covered which include assumption of risk, closure impacts to local economies, stakeholder involvement, arbitrary closures and statutory relief.
