AN ACT to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law, the
  vehicle  and traffic law and the state finance law, in relation to the
  creation of an ATV trail fund

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative intent and purpose. In order to best organize
and sustain an environmentally sensitive statewide system of trails  for
all  terrain vehicles, the legislature hereby creates an ATV trail fund.
The control and supervision of the trail fund shall be maintained by the
office of parks, recreation and historic preservation upon  consultation
with  the  department  of  environmental conservation. The trail fund is
created for the purpose of  designating  state,  municipal  and  private
lands as part of a statewide network of ATV trails. Fees obtained by the
office  of  parks,  recreation and historic preservation for the mainte-
nance of  the  trail  fund  shall  be  divided  between  administration,
enforcement, education and remediation and maintenance, construction and
development  of  the  statewide trail system.  It is the purpose of this
act to promote the safe and proper  use  of  all  terrain  vehicles  for
recreation  and  commerce  in  this  state  by encouraging their use and
development, while minimizing detrimental effects of such use  upon  the
environment.
  S 2. The parks, recreation and historic preservation law is amended by
adding a new article 26 to read as follows:
                               ARTICLE 26
                     ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE TRAIL FUND
