Don't forget to take a look at SJR 8207! It's an attempt to have the people of WA vote to change the state Constitution to allow for an income tax!

Default SJR 8207 State Constitution & Income Tax

Thanks Paul for the information on the Senate Bill regarding the State Constitution & Income Tax (SRJ 8207).

For everyone's convenience, I've attached the actual bill language (2 pages); the Senate Report is yet to be published.

SB5391 UPDATE
DISCOVER PASS ORV EXEMPTION LANGUAGE CLARIFIED
GOOD NEWS

Thanks to your help Senate Bill SB5391 was passed by the Senate Natural Resources Committee by a vote of six to one! Only Senator Kline voted against it and he always votes against anything that is good for motorized recreation.

Because the Discover Pass is such a politically sensitive issue SB5361 has now been referred to the Senate Ways and Means Committee.

The issue is the DNR is misapplying the Discover Pass requirement for dual registered vehicles and saying that if you have a street plate then you must have a Discover Pass too. They are choosing to ignore the law that clearly says that the Discover Pass is only required if a street plate is required.

This bill simply clarifies that vehicles with a valid offroad vehicle permit at locations where offroad vehicle activity is allowed are exempt from the Discover Pass requirements.

See link:

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summ...5391&year=2013


As original written, the Discover Pass legislation enacted in 2011 limited the requirement to motor vehicles required to be licensed for street use. The intent was to exempt offroad vehicle where offroad vehicle use is allowed because access to these areas is funded by the purchase of an offroad vehicle (ORV) use permit.

To require the purchase of a Discover Pass in addition to the ORV permit would be charging these vehicle owners twice for the exact same public land access.

ORV owners supporting this bill are willing to continue to pay their fair share, but not multiple times for the same thing.


If you support SB5391, the Senate Ways and Means Committee needs to hear from you.

Since I am not up on WA regs on the OHV tabs, would like some clarification. In OR, our Class II permits for 4x4's are required on public land anytime the vehicle is being used as an OHV. We also have a reciprical agreement with WA, on all of our classes of OHV.

Looking for the regs up there on when OHV tabs are required and if this revision to Discover goes through exempting OHV tabbed vehicles or dual registered rigs, will this apply to out of state vehicles with valid OHV permits in their state of registration if a reciprocity agreement is in effect.

This is something that should be clarified for the out of staters, and addressed if it does not apply.

What is happening is there are some dual-registered vehicles out there, i.e., they have a license plate for road use as well as an ORV sticker.. The law says that if you have a license plate, then you must have the Discover Pass. If you have an ORV sticker on your vehicle (whether it be a 4x4 or a off-road motorcycle that has been upgraded to be street legal under last year's SB5800), then you do NOT need the Discover pass.

For reasons unknown, the DNR is misapplying the law. They are saying that if you have a license plate, you must have the Discover Pass even if you also have an ORV sticker.

If you are referring to HB 1755 (or the companion SB 5391), the purpose of those identical bills is to clarify that if you have both a license plate AND an ORV sticker, you do NOT need the Discover Pass.

When this went into effect, they explained at a Delegates meeting that no matter what state you were from, if you were not from WA you had to have it.

OR OHV permits are universal for Class II (4x4's, buggies, sand rails, etc.) no matter if street legal or not.

Need to find out and clarify if WA is going to honor the reciprocity agreements across the board or not, and clarify it.
