THE REPORT ON THE INTERNAL REVIEW OF THE SNOWMOBILE PROGRAM by Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry Commissioner Walt Whitcomb, was presented to the Legislature's ACF Committee in early January. This study was initiated as a result of legislation introduced by the MSA last winter. We believe that the report and recommendations will help increase transparency and equity within the program and help clubs statewide as we move forward. View the report.
