The California OHMVR program was created in 1971 as a self-funded program. The primary funding is derived from registration of off-road vehicles, entries fees to State Vehicle Recreation Areas (SVRA), and gas tax revenue derived from a calculation of the motor vehicle fuel tax paid for fuel used in off-highway recreation.
The 2012/2013 Fiscal Year is the fourth consecutive year where substantial funding has been diverted from the OHMVR Program to other sources. Since 1974, approximately $195.9 million has been diverted from the OHMVR Program to the General Fund and State Parks and Recreation Fund. Of that total amount, $129 million has been diverted from the self-funded OHV Trust Fund within the last four state budget cycles.
