As an attorney and sportsman, I am writing to request that action be taken on HB 37, PUBLIC WATERS ACCESS ACT, to get it out of House Rules Committee and move it forward.
The law has worked well and Idaho and strikes an appropriate balance between the property rights of land owners and the access rights of Utah citizens to enjoy its natural resources.
If this bill is not passed, and if Utah trout streams and rivers (stocked by public dollars) continue to be privatized, then myself and others will take our vacations in Idaho where we can freely access fishing waters without harassment.
