The effort to get ATVs registered similar to cars has suffered a major setback in the West Virginia Senate. A Senate committee defeated a bill Tuesday that would have required all ATV owners to register their four-wheelers.
The registration would have also required fees and license plates, similar to cars. The legislation could still return as an amendment to another bill.
State lawmakers aren't the only ones working to regulate four-wheelers. Recently, Kenova City Council passed an ordinance forbidding riders from city streets. NewsChannel 3's Brooke Thacker has that story.
