HB 257: SB 80 in New Clothing and Another Nightmare for Utah’s Rivers
The water development lobby is taking another shot at devastating Utah’s rivers with destructive diversions. House Bill 257 would do the EXACT same thing SB 80 does, word for word. Just like SB 80, HB 257 would take $36 million in sales taxes every year to fund the Lake Powell Pipeline and Bear River Development.
This shows your legislators have heard your concerns with SB 80 and the water development lobbyists are looking for another way to sneak through the same bill under a different name. We need you to tell your legislators to not be tricked by the water development lobby and to vote NO on HB 257.
