To: Rep. Perry, L.,
Subject: Release HB 37
A 1982 Utah Supreme Court ruling established the public's right to use any surface water for recreation, so long as legal access exists. "State policy recognizes an interest of the public in the use of state waters for recreational purposes," according to the 1982 ruling.
I also support the Utah Supreme Court ruling in 2008 that allowed access.
Please rule on HB37 and send it to the House.
Thanks, Gerald J Kidd
