New law proposed to delete old, unused law

No controversy in this one: The House Transportation Committee introduced a bill this afternoon at the request of the state Department of Parks & Recreation having to do with cross-country skiing, but it actually doesn’t do anything. The department, as part of its “zero-based budgeting” effort, has been reviewing all of its statutes. In that process, said Deputy Director Tamara Humiston, it identified a law as obsolete, allowing for boards of county commissioners to appoint three-person advisory committees to address matters related to establishment and maintenance of winter recreation parking. The law was enacted in 1979; only one county set up such a committee, and it was disbanded in 1993. The purpose of the bill: Delete the now-unused clause from state law.
