OHV fees

Durango Herald

What has been proposed is that 40 percent of the money collected on OHVs goes for law-enforcement activities focused on illegal off-highway vehicle use and enforcing designated routes on public lands. Another 30 percent would go to restore areas damaged by improper or off-trail use of off-highway vehicles. And the final 30 percent would go to maintenance of existing routes, signage, maps and educational outreach.

That seem like an equitable distribution. It is supported by Trout Unlimited, the San Juan Citizens Alliance, Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, the Colorado Mountain Club, Colorado Wild, Great Old Broads for Wilderness about 30 other similarly interested groups.
