Arizona BLM  -  New Website  Posted 4-14-2017


Major Change for Out-of-State OHV Riders in AZ   PHOENIX - Out-of-state residents wishing to legally ride their off-highway vehicle and support OHV trail maintenance, education and law enforcement efforts in Arizona are required to purchase a nonresident OHV decal beginning as of September 1, 2019. The new decal was supported and pushed by the OHV riding community during the 2019 legislative session and was signed into law by Gov. Doug Ducey. The law requires nonresident OHV owners to purchase a decal to operate the machines within the state. All OHVs designed by the manufacturer primarily for use over unimproved terrain and that weigh 2,500 pounds or less are required by law to display a valid OHV decal to operate on public and state trust lands. Please note: This includes "street legal" OHVs that meet these two requirements. Before the law was passed, nonresident OHV owners could ride their machines within the state for up to 30 days only if their state had a similar in-state resident decal program. There is no longer a grace period allowing nonresidents to operate without an Arizona decal and owners are now required to purchase a decal before operating their machines within the state. Those caught riding without a current decal can be fined. Nonresident OHV decals cost $25 (plus a processing fee) and are good for one year from the purchase date. The nonresident OHV decal can only be purchased online through an Arizona Game and Fish Department portal account, which can be created at azgfd.gov by clicking "My Account."


H.R. 1373: Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act

If passed, this bill could have a negative impact on Recreational Rockhounding on some Public Lands in Arizona...

This fundamentally-flawed legislation has existed in one form or another for more than a decade.H.R. 1373 permanently bans energy production and leasing on more than one million acres of public land, equivalent to 80% of the size of the state of Delaware.
The withdrawal area targeted by this bill contains extremely value deposits of rare earths, critical minerals, copper and a 326,000,000 acre uranium reserve that contains the largest tract and highest grade uranium in the nation by a factor of six.H.R. 1373 will reduce important revenues for education, roads, hospitals and infrastructure.
This bill will kill jobs, harm local economies, infringe on private property rights, threaten national security and undermine
American energy security.Groups and elected officials formally opposing this bill can be viewed HERE.

HR 3405 – Permanently removes uranium from the critical minerals list

If passed, this bill could have a negative impact on Recreational Rockhounding on some Public Lands in Arizona...

Permanently removes uranium from the critical minerals list and prevents it from ever being relisted in the future regardless of national security or economic circumstances.
The U.S. is currently importing 93% of its commercial uranium from foreign countries, namely foreign adversaries Russia (15%), Kazakhstan (23%), Uzbekistan (7%) and Namibia (China) 6%.
The. U.S. is already at risk of losing the domestic uranium industry.
Just last week, findings were released from Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross that concluded “uranium is being imported into the United States in such quantities and under such circumstances as to threaten to impair the national security of the United States.
