- State Agencies Release OHV Report
Last Updated: January 29, 2009
The New Mexico Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department has released its report in response to last year's Senate Joint Memorial 40. A public meeting to review the report was held in Santa Fe yesterday with State Senators State Senators Phil Griego, Dede Feldman, and State Representative Jeanette Wallace presiding. SJM40 required the department to partner with four other agencies to compile a report on specific areas identified in the Memorial.
State Senator Phil Griego stated that there will be OHV legislation introduced in the upcoming session but wasn't yet sure exactly what will be included. The report included 'findings' on the subject areas of User Conflicts, Enforcement and Monitoring, Natural Resource Issues, Safety, Off-Road Parks and Recreation Areas, Cost-Benefit Analysis, and Institutional and Information Needs. The report also included a long list of Recommendations for upcoming legislation.
There was been no legislation introduced yet but all riders in New Mexico need to be ready to let your State Senators and State Representatives what you think of any introduced legislation. NMOHVA is working to influence any proposed legislation and will communicate with its members when learn more.
Below is a copy of the full report. The recommendations start on page 9 of the full report.
