Wisconsin residents may soon be able to use an ATV to plow snow on sidewalks and roads.

A bill is being considered by the Wisconsin Assembly’s Committee on Renewable Energy and Rural Affairs that would grant access for ATVs from October through April.

In order to be used on public roads not normally open to ATVs, the machines would have to be equipped with a snow plow or similar snow-removal device.
