LEGISLATORS SAY A BREAKTHROUGH ON UTV LEGISLATION IS POSSIBLE—State Senator Patty Ritchie, a Majority Republican told the St. Lawrence County Conservative Party Committee Friday Democratic Senators have expressed willingness to sit down and negotiate a compromise on allowing side-by-side all-terrain vehicles to be registered. This, after GOP Minority Assemblyman Ken Blankenbush told the Committee environmental groups blasted a bill in his house so powerfully minutes after he had it drafted, he took his name off it and gave it to a Democrat in the Assembly Majority to sponsor. The Committee voted to endorse Ritchie and Blankenbush in their re-election bids, as well as GOP Assembly incumbent Marc Butler, Senate GOP incumbents Joe Griffo and Betty Little, and GOP Assembly candidate David Kimmel.
