I just came from the Ag Committee meeting and Ritter's new appointment as Executive Director of Colorado Department of Natural Resources, Harris Sherman, testified that he was recommending deletion of Section 17 from the bill due to "a lack of trust" from the users (that's us!). Since the CWCB is a division of Sherman's Department, I would say that we are in good shape for now.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to write. Your letters had an impact.
This fight is by no means over and I'm sure that we will require your help in grassroots mobilization again in the future.

This is an excellent example of the types of things that we are trying to do to help Colorado boaters. Without your support we disappear.
P.S. I think we can unsticky this now.
