AB 64 to repeal AB 1595

"SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, Monday introduced Assembly Bill 64 to repeal last year’s AB 1595 (Cook), which imposed unnecessary restrictions on off road vehicle ownership and recreation.

“AB 64 will restore the rights law abiding citizens enjoyed last year when participating in off highway vehicle recreation,†said Assemblyman Donnelly.

AB 1595 was supported by the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association. The bill received no formal opposition during the legislative process. As a result, the bill was not vetted in a single committee. Riders and families who use and purchase the vehicles did not send in formal opposition until it was too late, and the bill had already been signed into law. Their protests, however, revealed significant problems with the restrictions.

The author vowed to fix these issues by deleting some provisions imposed by the bill. Unfortunately, the only fix that passed within Legislative deadlines last year was minor, only tweaking some of the freedom-breaching restrictions, not removing them.

Assemblyman Donnelly continued, “AB 64 will wipe the slate clean by removing AB 1595 from the books completely. A basic American sport and pastime should not be unreasonably restricted. Families are perfectly capable of watching out for the safety of those in their party without further government interference. When governing, we must be sensitive to our duty of using the least restrictive methods possible; the laws already on the books were adequate to ensure safe operation of OHVs.â€

AB 64 will strike the language of AB 1595 from California Vehicle code, restoring the previous laws regulating off-highway vehicles."
 
Alrighty! Someone with a good head on their shoulders in the Crazytown state gov't!! Just like we called to protest 1595 we need to call and write to support this bill. I'll be e mailing and him and calling my representatives directly on Monday. We have to keep this going:D:D

someone get this guy a beer!! That would be awesome!

Can I have a Beer too?:D LOL!!!

I was the one who told him about it, and damn glad I did...

I golfed with him in Hesperia's Chamber of Commerce Tournament last year and decided that I had a friend in the assembly. He's a great guy and he really does care. Actions speak louder than words...

Great job Dan!This is great news and I am glad that somebody with common sense is actually listening.
 
Doesnt it need to get voted in first?

Yes, it has just been printed. It still needs to go through committee and be voted on. Your representatives need to know how to vote on this thing so make sure we all get on the phone and point them in the right direction. YES!!!!!
 
the 2nd link dose not open as i was going to post this on the other web site but i will wait untell the 2nd link is fixed
thanks Devin
 
Back 6 months ago everyone was throwing a fit. They were calling Cooks office and trying to get answers and seek resolutions. What's happening now? It seems to me that most of this effort was driven from fear of loosing the choice to not wear a helmet. Now that January 1 has passed people have moved on and have lost interest. There seems to be less passion and dedication to preserving the four seat conversions.

unfortunately thats how the public works. When we get defeated we just pick up our smashed nuts and carry on. Only a select few keep fighting the battle. I for one am ashamed to say i have just taken the law and accepted it since Jan 1.
 
Does anyone know what's happening with this bill or what the status is?
Can you have a back seat in a Rhino or not? I thought the back seat part of Cooks bill got put off for awhile?
