That's not exactly true; in Yellowstone, both uses are limited: snowmobiles are limited to roads; boats are limited to lakes. Just trying to keep the discussion fact-based.
Added: As I read the article, the legislation would not automatically open things up, but the parks could no longer say "we can't," and would open up a process of "how to" -- interesting and big news; sure to provoke!
