CONCORD, NH – Representative Ted Gorski (R-Bedford) released the following statement after the House passed SB256, establishing a safety program for off-highway recreational vehicles by a vote of 186-179.
“This is the type of legislation one would expect to see in nanny states like Massachusetts or New York, but never here in the Granite State. This bill would force all individuals that want to drive OHRVs to complete a 5-hour safety program, even if they have been operating them for decades. It is disrespectful and would have a negative impact on New Hampshire’s recreational industry. The Live Free or Die state should not be in the business of legislating fun.
