AN ACT to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law, the

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.
