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


  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
  § 2. The title heading of title D of the parks, recreation and histor-
ic preservation law is amended and a new article 26  is  added  to  such
title to read as follows:
                             SNOWMOBILES AND
                          ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLES
                               ARTICLE 26

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
