BILL NUMBER:S7476

TITLE OF BILL: An act requiring the commissioner of the department of
motor vehicles to conduct a study on the economic impact of all terrain
vehicle usage in this state

PURPOSE: This bill requires the Commissioner of the Department of Motor
Vehicles to study the economic impact of all terrain vehicle (ATV) usage
in New York State.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 requires the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles to prepare a
summary report on the economic impact of all terrain vehicle (ATV) use
and recreation in New York state. Such report shall be prepared in
conjunction with the Commissioner of Economic Development and the
Commissioner of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The report
shall include information regarding: the number of ATV participants in
New York state, the frequency of ATV participation, the amount of money
ATV participants contribute to the local economy, the number of jobs ATV
participants support, and the amount of taxes paid by ATV participants.
The results of the report and any recommendations of the Commissioner
shall be submitted to the Governor and the Legislature.

Section 2 provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: All terrain vehicles (ATVs) are an important part of the
economy throughout New York State. Many businesses are based on the sale
of ATVs and ATV related products. ATV participants travel throughout the
State providing vital support to numerous tourism related small busi-
nesses, such as restaurants and motels. For many towns and villages in
New York State, the activity and revenue generated by ATV participants
is a substantial part of their economy. Therefore, to gain a better
understanding of the economic impact ATVs and ATV participants have in
New York State, it is important for the State to conduct this study and
issue the accompanying report.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
