House votes 49-18 for mountain biking plate

HB 486, creating a new special license plate to benefit mountain biking trails, has passed the House on a 49-18 vote. “This bill is purely revenue-generating for the state,” said Rep. Brian Cronin, D-Boise, the bill’s lead sponsor. Each special plate sold will initially send $22 to the state highway fund and $15 to the state Department of Parks and Recreation for trail work; in subsequent years, renewals will send $13 to the highway fund and $12 to parks. “This bill has the support of trail user groups from all parts of the state,” Cronin told the House. “This is a bill that can generate revenue when we are definitely looking under every rock, as well as serve the dual purpose of marking one of Idaho’s unparalleled recreational opportunities.” The bill now moves to the Senate side.
