Utah Legislation pushing bill to limit access to Utah waterways

Tuesday, 24 February 2009
If you live or use Utah's rivers for recreation then head over to Recreation Law blog. Long time readers of the instructors blog will remember me talking about his fantastic site filled with great legal resources for the outdoor industry.

Today, James talks about how the legislature of Utah is considering bill HB 187 which will limit access to rivers for boaters and fisherman who want to walk, swim and float in the water.

The crazy thing about the bill is that it takes away access to all but 14 rivers in Utah and imposes limits on the 14.

If you want to learn more about the bill, visit the Utah Water Guardians and sign the online petition.
