Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill provides that the Department of Natural Resources may not charge an
admission fee to enter a state trail to any person with a disability who is operating
or riding on a tandem or side-by-side bicycle or being pulled in a trailer by a bicycle
if the other operator of the tandem or side-by-side bicycle or the operator of the
bicycle pulling the trailer has a current, valid state trail pass.
Under current law, DNR is required to issue an annual state trail pass that
authorizes admission to a state trail for a fee of $25. DNR also issues a daily state
trail pass for a fee of $5. DNR is authorized to waive or alter these fees for certain
classes of persons or groups, certain areas, certain types of visitation or times of the
year, admission to special scheduled events or programs, or on a per person basis.
Currently, certain members and former members of the U.S. armed forces are
exempt from paying a fee to enter a state trail.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
