An Act To Recognize the Registrations of Snowmobiles and All-terrain Vehicles Owned by Residents of a State That Borders Maine

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 12 MRSA 13104, sub- 16, as enacted by PL 2013, c. 588, Pt. E, 6 and affected by 7, is amended to read:

16. Reciprocity. The commissioner shall allow a resident of a state that borders this State to operate in this State a snowmobile that is registered in the bordering state if the registration is valid and that state allows a snowmobile registered in this State to be operated in that state. The commissioner may allow a nonresident to operate in this State a snowmobile that is not registered in this State during one 3-consecutive-day period, 2 days of which are weekend days, annually if:

A. The nonresident’s snowmobile has a valid registration from another state; and
B. The nonresident’s state of residency allows a snowmobile registered in Maine to be operated in that state for a period of time of at least 3 consecutive days without being registered in that state.

This subsection may not be construed to authorize the operation of a snowmobile in a manner contrary to this chapter except as provided in this subsection.

Sec. 2. 12 MRSA 13155, sub- 12 is enacted to read:

12. Reciprocity. The commissioner shall allow a resident of a state that borders this State to operate in this State an ATV that is registered in the bordering state if the registration is valid and that state allows an ATV registered in this State to be operated in that state.
