STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Seven

AN ACT dedicating certain OHRV and snowmobile unrefunded road tolls to the fish and game department, and relative to the land and community heritage investment program administrative fund.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

375:1 Road Tolls; Credit Provided; OHRV and Snowmobiles; Fish and Game Department Use. Amend RSA 260:61, I to read as follows:

I. Annually on or before June 30 the state treasurer shall transfer, from road tolls collected, an amount equal to the number of licensed OHRVs and snowmobiles for the previous year times the average number of gallons consumed per year per OHRV and snowmobile times the gasoline road toll imposed under RSA 260:32, less any amount refunded for OHRV and snowmobile use for the previous year, to the fish and game department and the bureau of trails as follows. The road toll administrator shall report to the state treasurer if there is a balance of unrefunded road tolls collected. The administrator shall certify the amount to the state treasurer who shall credit ½ of such balance to the bureau of trails for use as provided in paragraph I-a, and ½ of such balance to the fish and game department. For the purposes of this section, “the average number of gallons consumed per year per OHRV or snowmobile” is [50] 100.

I-a. The bureau shall use 66 2/3 percent of the amount credited for grants under its grant-in-aid program, and 33 1/3 percent for general operating expenses and expenses incurred in administering and supervising the grant-in-aid program. Any balances in the funds hereby transferred shall not lapse at the end of the fiscal year but shall remain in the OHRV and snowmobile fund.

375:2 Land and Community Heritage Investment Program; Administrative Fund. Amend RSA 227-M:7-a, I to read as follows:

I. There is established in the office of the state treasurer a fund to be known as the land and community heritage investment program administrative fund into which the state treasurer shall credit any revenue generated pursuant to RSA 261:97-b, I-a. [For the biennium ending June 30, 2007] There shall also be deposited, on a monthly basis, interest income generated on appropriations made to the land and community heritage investment program trust fund pursuant to RSA 227-M:7. The total revenues generated to the administrative fund from these 2 sources [for each year of said biennium] shall not exceed $335,000 for each fiscal year. Any revenue generated from these 2 sources in excess of the $335,000 maximum per year shall be credited by the treasurer to the land and community heritage investment program trust fund in RSA 227-M:7. The authority shall include in its annual report the amount of revenues exceeding the maximum which are credited to the trust fund.

375:3 Effective Date. This act shall take effect July 1, 2007.
