PaOHV Alert-Segregated Fund Bill Passes House

PaOHV closed June with big wins in the legislature. PaOHVís legislation splitting the Snowmobile/ATV fund

passed the state House of Representatives 190-0 on Saturday. This action followed favorable committee

action on June 16.

A companion bill passed unanimously the Senate Transportation Committee on June 24. The Senate bill awaits

action by the full Senate in the coming days.

Representative Marty Causerís (R-McKean) and Senator Pat Stafanoís (R-Fayette) legislation segregates the

Snowmobile and ATV Funds into two separate accounts. These bills assure that money generated by ATV

registrations, fines, and gas tax contributions is spent on ATV trail development and maintenance. There

will be no more co-mingling of ATV sourced funds with snowmobile money. Shared use trails will derive

funding from the two accounts on a proportional use basis.

The legislation reconfigures the composition of the Snowmobile/ATV Advisory Committee to add representatives

from the Department of Commerce and Economic Development and the Pennsylvania Association of Travel and

Tourism. Two seats representing interests unrelated to motorized recreation have been traded for the

tourism seats.

Language in the bills increases reporting and audit oversight of motorized expenditures. This provision

allows the Legislature to access motorized expenditure data that has been unavailable to date. The House

bill requires the Auditor General to conduct financial and performance audits of the fund every two years to

ensure proper administration of it.

Finally, bills accelerate the grant awards process. Grants will be awarded quarterly rather than annually.

This should allow applicants to seize opportunities with a 90 day turn around rather than waiting a full

year the next grant period.



In passing the bills, the legislature has rejected DCNRís claim that the Department is technologically

incapable of spitting the fund. DCNR argued that it does not have the accounting expertise to administer

two funds. DCNR also argued that the bills will deny funding to parks like Rock Run and AOAA although the

language expressly contradicts the Departmentís position.

PaOHVís Segregation of Funds Bill Is Law

PaOHVís Segregation of Funds bill has been signed by Governor Wolf. It is effective in September 18.

This is a major win for PaOHV members.

Senator Pat Stefanoís (R-Westmoreland) legislation divides the Snowmobile/ATV fund into separate funds. Registration dollars paid by ATV owners can only be used to fund ATV projects. Co-mingling of ATV and snowmobile funds ends when the act becomes effective.

The bill redefines the composition of the Snowmobile/ATV advisory committee. A representative from the Department of Community and Economic Development and the Pennsylvania Economic Development Association are added. The two seats allotted to conservation and non-motorized recreation organizations have been removed.

Finally, the bill restructures the DCNR grant program converting it to a semiannual rather than an annual application. There will be two grant application cycles in 2017.

A companion bill, HB 970, was sponsored by Rep. Martin Causer (R-Cameron). PaOHV thanks both Senator Stefano and Rep. Causer for their foresight and leadership on this issue.
