          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-

     3  amended to read as follows:
     4    (a) "All terrain vehicle" or "ATV" means  any  self-propelled  vehicle
     5  which  is  manufactured  for sale for operation primarily on off-highway
     6  trails or off-highway competitions and  only  incidentally  operated  on
     7  public  highways  [providing  that such vehicle does]. A "class one ATV"
     8  may not exceed seventy inches in  width,  or  one  thousand  pounds  dry
     9  weight.    A  "class two ATV" may not exceed seventy inches in width and
    10  shall exceed one thousand pounds dry weight but may not exceed one thou-
    11  sand eight hundred pounds dry weight. Provided, however, this definition
    12  shall not include a "snowmobile" or other self-propelled vehicles  manu-
    13  factured  for off-highway use exclusively designed for travel on snow or
    14  ice, steered by skis or runners and supported in whole or in part by one
    15  or more skis, belts or cleats which utilize an endless belt tread.
    16    § 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
    17  it shall have become a law. Effective immediately, the addition,  amend-
    18  ment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implemen-
    19  tation  of  this  act on its effective date is authorized to be made and
    20  completed on or before such effective date.
