Kentucky Bill to Promote Outdoor Motorized Recreation Signed Into Law

Legislation (H.B. 156) to promote and fund outdoor recreation and tourism development by establishing the Kentucky Mountain Regional Recreation Authority (KMRA) was signed into law by Governor Matt Bevin.  Under the new law, the state will establish, maintain, and promote a recreational trail system throughout the Kentucky Mountain Regional Recreation Authority (KMRA) to increase economic development, tourism, and outdoor recreation for residents and visitors.  The law will provide recreational opportunities for, among other things, all-terrain vehicle riding, motorcycle riding, rock climbing, off-highway vehicle driving, and pleasure driving.
Thank you to those who participated in supporting this bill.
