(2)        13 AAC 02.455 is proposed to be amended by removing “snowmobile” to remove the prohibition of use on roadways.

(3)        13 AAC 02.482 is proposed to be amended by adding a new subsection to allow municipalities to prohibit snowmobiles or all-purpose vehicles from using roadways.

(4)        13 AAC 04.400 is proposed to be amended by adding the term “all-purpose vehicle”.
