OHRV – New Rules

ohrvThis morning, I was elected Chairman of a commission to study, and potentially revise the laws governing OHRV use in new Hampshire.  The scope of the committee is:

IV.(a)  The commission’s study shall include, but not be limited to, reviewing and examining:

(1)  The provisions of RSA 215-A.

(2)  OHRV usage on state highways, on trail connectors, on town highways, as well as on town roads that are not part of the trail system.

(3)  The proper and adequate allocation of law enforcement and emergency response resources and responsibilities regarding OHRV usage.

(4)  Any other matter the commission deems relevant to its study.

(b)  The commission shall seek and accept input and testimony from other interested stakeholders and members of the public.

The members of the commission include people representing the Police Chiefs, State Police, Dept. of Safety, Dept. of Transportation, OHRV Club Assocation, Fish and Game, etc.  I am more interested in hearing your thoughts.  If you have an OHRV, or are a member of a club, please contact me so that we set up a time to hear local views.

This commission was established by HB1396 – http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/bill_status/billText.aspx?id=338&txtFormat=html
