A Vermont legislative committee that reviews rules issued by the executive agencies of state government will consider whether to allow all-terrain vehicles on state-owned land.
Five of eight members of the Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules have told the Associated Press that they believe the question of ATVs on state land should be settled by the full Legislature.
Officials with the state Agency of Natural Resources say the rule they proposed was in keeping with already-passed legislation. But members of the Legislature’s rules committee are expressing doubt. The rule would allow ATV connector trails across state land in order to connect private trail networks. The panel meets today and the ATV rule is on its agenda.
