Robin Cunningham, the ED of the Fishing Outfitters Association of Montana has attended every session in Helena as our ear to the grindstone for almost 2 decades. Two weeks ago he informed those of us attending the Board of Directors Meeting in Bozeman about HB 309. Robin has been keeping us informed all along the way. There has been lots of coverage througout the web regarding this attact on stream access here in Montana. The blogs Willfishforwork and ChiWulff have been covering this quite well. I, for one, have been writing emails to those in the House, Senate and the Governor opposing this attack on the Stream Access Law.
Yesterday afternoon Robin sent out an email to the Board saying that HB309, the ‘Ditch Bill’, is scheduled for hearing in the Senate Agriculture, Livestock, and Irrigation Committee on Thursday, March 3, in Room 335 starting at 3:00 p.m. Helena, MT.
