Action Alert! OHV Legislation

Post by Rut Row » Fri Feb 14, 2014 3:08 pm

Team - please contact the members of the Natural Resources Subcommittion of Environmental Matters Committee (listed below and let them know your stance on HB 660 "Forests and Parks - Public Recreation on Private and State-Owned Land - Off-Highway Vehicles."

Why is this good for OHVs?

The first obstacle to private landowners opening their property for OHV use is liability. This change extends the current liability exemption (for a landowner who agrees to the use of the landowner's property for cross-country skiing or snowmobiling in Garrett County) to all Counties in Maryland and includes the use of OHVs. This is good for owners of reclaimed coal mines in western MD, owners of sand or gravel pits in southern or eastern MD, for stone quarries, for farmers wishing to generate some additional revenue from their land, etc.

Also, many landowners do not want OHVs on their property and become alienated to OHVs in general when rogue trails appear on their property without their consent. The greater use of OHVs on private land should reduce rouge trails on private and public land.


Please contact the committee members listed below and your elected representatives ASAP!

Please send a courtsey copy of your email to Travis Martz <travis@martzlegal.com> and Ken Kyler <ken@kyler.com>
