NEW YORK -- State Senator Jim Seward says the Senate has passed a bill exempting vintage snowmobiles from the $100 annual registration fee.

Assemblywoman Marianne Buttenschon, first introduced the legislation. The bill is made in collaboration with the New York State Snowmobile Association (NYSSA).

In a statement, Senator Seward commented on why he sponsored this bill.

"These sleds are used mainly for parades or shows, not trail riding, and exempting them from state registration costs would help make the hobby more affordable. Snowmobiling makes a significant contribution to the Upstate economy during winter months," Seward said.

This bill would exempt snowmobiles manufactured prior to 1980 from registration.
