Just so everyone is up to speed on the history here of how this came about.
This bill was sponsored by Representative Carl Albrecht (rural legislator) that was generated by the OHV community itself. The bill sponsor called it "a user group generated bill," and based upon the list below, he's not wrong. Here is a list of people and organizations that spoke in favor of the bill at the legislature or publicly endorsed it:
Utah ATV Association
Utah OHV Association
Utah Farm Bureau
Utah OHV Advocates
Utah Division of Recreation
New Car Dealers of Utah
Utah Power Sport Dealer Association
Moab Adventure Center
The Sevier County Sheriff, Nathan Curtis
I'm sure there are others, but these are groups/organizations that are on the record supporting this piece of legislation.
The OHV community at large and Utah's rural communities came together because there is a problem, and regular educational attempts have not worked. The rural legislators seemed to speak in favor of it the most.
Between two committee hearings, one in the House and the other in the Senate, not a single person spoke against it and it the bill didn't receive a single negative vote in committees. It passed the House with a 72-1 vote, the only nay vote being Rep Birkland from Morgan, who asked a general question about how this will be enforced, but didn't get into specifics or state her position in the discussion on the bill. It passed the Senate with a 25-0 vote.
It seems like the passion we are seeing online today for this one needed to be at this time last year, not right now.
