According to Dave Crum, here is how the March 27th meeting went:
DEAD BILLS: 77; 304; 368; 369; 370; 474; 52;
354: Alive barely; amended to drop everything except to include, helmets for snowmobiler and passengers under 18 on funded trails.
854: to be carried over until later as things develop (whatever that means)
359: a. No reciprocity with anyone (because of the need for funds ie, the snowmobile guru says this is a big fiscal winner, so they went for it)
b. Add: Raise ATV to match snowmobiles at $33 resident and $68 out of state.
c. Add: entire fee to be sunset and discussed again only after two years.
d. Add: Funds collected from out of state and $3 difference ($30 to $33 resident and their estimate at $200,000) to go to ATV Trail Grant Fund and Law Enforcement Trail Grant Fund.
Roberta Scruggs has checked with Paul Jacques who will be chairing the Governor's Task Force about forming an ATV Action Group and invite anyone--from ATV clubs to landowners who want to help, to join it. Paul sees no problem with getting some grassroots efforts started while the task force works on its report. If you want more information on this Action Group, please email to Roberta at email@example.com
