Anti-Hobbyist Snorkel Bill Dies As Minnesota Legislature Adjourns

Legislation (SF 2793/SF 2831) that would have prohibited operation of an off-highway vehicle (OHV) on public land or public waters with an air-intake pipe or snorkel that is more than six inches above the manufacturer's original air-intake pipe died when the Minnesota Legislature adjourned. SF 2793 was introduced as a proposal for a study on the impact of OHVs on wetlands, but was amended in committee to include the proposed ban on snorkel use. We will be on alert if the bill is introduced again next year.
Congratulations to Those Who Contacted Minnesota State Legislators to Oppose this Bill.
