ATV’s Private Land 

A bill to tighten enforcement of all-terrain vehicles on private land in Maine is dead. The House and Senate failed to agree on matching versions of thebill, so it died Monday. The original proposal would allow game wardens to stop ATVs on private property without a reasonable suspicion that a law’s been broken. Present law says officers must have probable cause to stopATV users on private land. Supporters of the bill said the tougher enforcement policy wouldstrengthen relations between private property owners and ATV userswho want to use their land. Opponents said the added level ofenforcement weakens privacy rights. (AP)
