Legislators will consider a leftover bill from 2019 this week that would give abutters more say in whether towns allow OHRV corridor extensions on public rights of way.

Supporters say House Bill 683-FN as reworked over the summer will preserve the peace and tranquility of these often remote roads. But opponents say it will kill the state’s developing all-terrain-vehicle tourism growth by denying connectivity to existing trail networks.

House Bill 683-FN is expected to be heard by the House on Wednesday or Thursday when lawmakers return for Convening Day.
