Utah Rally for Public Water Access

Occupy Salt Lake!

The Utah Stream Access Coalition will be holding a press conference and rally to fight the proposed House Bill68 and to support a new bill (yet to be numbered) sponsored be Rep. Dixon M. Pitcher to offer compromise.

HB68 was written by Rep. Kay L. McIff as an attempt to protect the HB141, also known as the "Public Waters Access Act" which slipped through the legislative process by McIff without time for public scrutiny. HB141 made public access to over 400 rivers and waterways closed off and susceptible to criminal trespass offense for the public to recreate in public waters that flow over private property, with the exception of floating as long as the bottom of the river is not touched.

The press conference and rally will be held February 15th at 10:00 AM on the South Steps of the Utah State Capitol Building located at 350 North State Street in Salt Lake City.

If you can't make the rally you can support USAC by contacting the Utah House Rules and Natural Resource  Committees.
