Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill increases ATV registration fees for residents from $45 to $70, nonresident 7-day registration fees from $75 to $100 and nonresident annual registration fees from $90 to $115 starting May 1, 2022.  The additional $25 from each registration will be deposited in the ATV Recreational Management Fund (ARMF) within the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (ACF).  Based on an estimated 78,000 ATV registrations, it is anticipated that the fee increases will generate an additional $1,791,817 in Other Special Revenue Funds revenue to the ARMF beginning in fiscal year 2022-23.  This bill also includes an accompanying allocation to ACF for the expenditure of the additional revenue. 
The bill also creates an antique ATV registration fee for an ATV more than 25 years old.  The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife estimates that approximately 3,000 current registrations might be switched to the new antique ATV registration.  All of the revenue from antique registrations will be credited to the General Fund.  The net impact of 3,000 current registrations, which are split between Other Special Revenue Funds revenue and General Fund revenue, switching to an antique registration would be an increase of $36,000 in General Fund revenue.
