Legislation to require that forest roads be open to motorized use by the public unless otherwise designated by the Department of Natural Resources was approved by the Michigan House. Under the bill, before the department newly restricts a road or trail used to access public land, it must provide local governments in which the land is located written notice that includes the reason for the restriction. The bill will next be considered by the Michigan Senate Committee on Outdoor Recreation and Tourism.
