SENATE BILL NO. 1436
BY RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENT COMMITTEE
1 AN ACT
2 RELATING TO THE OFF-ROAD MOTOR VEHICLE ACCOUNT; AMENDING SECTION 57-1901,
3 IDAHO CODE, TO PROVIDE A CONDITION OF ELIGIBILITY FOR CERTAIN GRANT FUNDS.
4 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
5 SECTION 1. That Section 57-1901, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
6 amended to read as follows:
7 57-1901. CREATION OF OFF-ROAD MOTOR VEHICLE ACCOUNT -- PURPOSE. There is
8 hereby created and established in the state treasury an account to be known as
9 the "off-road motor vehicle account" to which shall be credited or deposited
10 all moneys accruing for the purposes of the account. The purposes for which
11 moneys in the account may be used shall be to acquire, purchase, improve,
12 repair, maintain, furnish, and equip off-road motor vehicle facilities and
13 sites or areas used by off-road vehicles on public or private land, and to
14 assist with the enforcement of laws and regulations governing the use of off-
15 road vehicles in the state of Idaho. The park and recreation board is charged
16 with the administration of the account for the purposes specified herein. Pro-
17 vided however, that in order to be eligible for any grant for off-highway
18 vehicle programs funded by the "off-road motor vehicle account," an applicant
19 must have in place an adequate regulatory program, as determined by the direc-
20 tor and the park and recreation board pursuant to guidelines established by
21 rule, to ensure that natural resources are not damaged by intended use of the
22 area for which the grant is being obtained. The provisions of section 67-4228,
23 Idaho Code, are made applicable for the provisions of this section. All claims
24 against the account shall be examined, audited and allowed in the same manner
25 now or hereafter provided by law for claims against the state, except that the
26 board is hereby empowered to enter into agreements with legal governmental
27 agencies in Idaho, for the disbursement of funds to them on a project by proj-
28 ect basis.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
As use and horsepower of off-road vehicles increases,
reports of erosion and other resource damage are increasing.
This proposal is intended to insure that recipients of off-road
vehicle grants from the Department of Parks and Recreation have
adequate regulatory programs in place to minimize such damage.
The only impact will be staff time to evaluate grants to
insure that the recipient meets the requirements of the law.
