New York Earmarks $5.8 million for Sledding

The State of New York plans to distribute $5.8 million in grants to towns and organizations dependent on snowmobiling. That’s up from $1 million last year.
A State Parks and Recreation spokesperson said the jump in funding is partly due to an increase in the registration fee for snowmobiles from $25 to $45.
The funds to be divided include about $5 million in direct municipal grants, $795,000 for insurance coverage for snowmobile organizations, and $150,000 for law enforcement. Snowmobile organizations benefiting from the grant money provide regular maintenance on the 10,000 mile State-designated trail system.
