A bill in the state legislature would open the corridor of state land along the Dalton Highway to snow machining. House Bill 267 would allow snow machines within a 5 mile strip along the right of way from October 1st through April 30th.  Fairbanks Game Board member Al Barrette is behind the bill. He says the Dalton was only closed to snow machining out of concern for caribou back when the road first opened to the public.
