HB37, which is
modeled after the laws of Idaho, is being sponsored by Rep. Dixon Pitcher of
Ogden, Utah. If passed by the House and Senate, and signed into law
by the Governor, HB37 will replace the current law which curtailed public recreational activities on and in those streams and
rivers that traverse privately owned beds. It will remove the threat
of criminal trespass citations for water recreationists who touch privately
owned streambeds without written permission to do so, and will allow the public
to once again use and enjoy its resource – the public
waters of Utah.
