A Kentucky Senate Committee has adopted legislation to lessen helmet requirements for certain all-terrain vehicle operators.  

The measure was offered by Monticello Senator Sarah Beth Gregory.

Illinois officials say they will improve all-terrain vehicle recreational access by selling usage stamps beginning early next year.

The Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday that $15 "off-highway vehicle" stamps will be issued by approved vendors along with hunting and fishing licenses. They will be valid from April 1 through March 31, 2015.
