The December 2016 NRC South Report for Cal4Wheel is available for download as an attached document.

Highlight included in the report are listed below....

California Department of Fish and Game Commission: (Flat-tailed horned lizard)

Big news of the month is the Fish and Game Commission declined to accept the petition from Center for Biological Diversity to list the flat-tailed horned lizard as a California State endangered species. The topic is off the discussion table for the time being. As the issue has been floating around for over 18 years, there is expectation this is a temporary set back for CBD. It is good news as it clears the way for Ocotillo Wells SVRA to again host events as per the original intent of the SVRA. 

California Department of Fish and Game (Wolf)

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has released the Conservation Plan for Gray Wolves in California (Part 1 and Part 2). Wolves returning to the state and the plan addresses important concerns regarding the presence of wolves, including conflicts with livestock and the maintenance of adequate prey sources for wolves, other predators, and public use. 

BLM: BLM is proposing to withdraw the lands within the boundary of the DRECP from location and entry under the Mining Law of 1872, for 20 years, subject to valid existing rights. The with- drawal does not apply to the mineral leasing, geothermal leasing, or material sales laws. The segregation is intended to preserve the status quo while the proposed withdrawal process is under review. 

California Department of Parks and Recreation: (Hungry Valley SVRA)

California State Parks has started a public process to update the General Plan for Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA). The General Plan Update will provide a comprehensive management plan that will guide the future of Hungry Valley SVRA for the next 20 to 30 years.

State Parks Transformation and OHMVR Renewal:

At the recent OHMVR Commission meet- ing in Holtville, the topic of transformation was addressed and public comment was accepted. In my public comment, I applauded the efforts of the Director and cautioned that many of her proposals deal with personnel issues that have yet to be vetted through state civil service protections and the representative union.

Other:

The state issues of transportation, water, energy and immigration are going to be major competition for re-authorization of the program. Senate Bill 1 and Assembly Bill 1 have been introduced in the new state legislative session. Both bills propose significant changes to the fuel tax distribution to the detriment of the OHMVR program.
