Get a load of this crap. I don't know exactly what a 'slush' fund is, but this sounds like it fits. I don't go snowmobiling to much anymore, but this is not right. It's like if the people donate to a charity, and then Big Brother comes along and says "I'll be needing 30% of that." IMO anytime a fee is added for whatever purpose, it is to get the money out of your hands and into a place they can get their hands on it as needed. Once they wear out the 30%, they will refine the law to 50% and so on and on and on... WHAT A CROCK.

Just wait. With the drecreasing population in NY, and the lowere tax revenue generated from Wall St., thanks to Obama's crackdown on them, NY will need to raise all other taxes to make up the difference. My wife moved from the Bville-Weedsport area 15 years ago. We only go back to visit on the holidays. It seems to me, an outsider, that once teenagers grow up and realize that there is life outside the states, and that shoveling snow everyday before work and before getting home, and taxes are high, they move away and not move back. This leaves their parents (if they still want to remain) and their grandparents, to fill the gaps in the tax shortfall. Unfortuanately, this snowmobile fund is jut the tip of the iceberg.

oops, teenagers realize there is life outside their towns and villages in other states.
