Joint Committee Reverses Snowmobile Amendment

November 14, 2013 State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments

The Wyoming Legislature’s Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committee late last month discussed changes to the state’s snowmobile permitting process to be proposed at the upcoming legislative session in February.  Teton County Senator Leland Christensen who sits on that committee says amendments proposed during a previous meeting held in Teton Village would have limited registration requirements to only snowmobiles using state-maintained trails; but after discussion at this meeting, those amendments were dropped.  Christensen says after some research and considerable input from the snowmobile community and clubs from around the state, the committee found an overwhelming response that the amendment would create more problems and difficulties in managing than its benefits.  Now, Christen says. “The bill is moving forward with a slight increase – last year, we were looking at pretty large increases [in fees] and that bill died when it hit the house; and so we’ll see how it does this. Christensen says while it is very likely to be listed for legislative action during the upcoming session since it is a committee bill, its future is questionable since a bill needs a 2/3 majority vote to be passed during a budget session.
