Overview: Legislation (S.B. 498) creates a two-year pilot program allowing all-terrain or recreational vehicles in Cabwaylingo State Forest. Under current law, there is not all-terrain or recreational vehicle access in this state forest. Legislation (S.B. 589) allows for personalized license plates for antique vehicles.
