Legislation to empower two or more contiguous counties to form regional recreation authorities to establish new recreational trail systems and recreation-management programs tailored to the needs of their communities was approved by the West Virginia Senate. The bill would require that these authorities work with private landowners, county officials, community leaders, government agencies, recreational user groups and recreational entrepreneurs on these initiatives. The bill will next be considered by the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.
