HB 10-1086 Private Interest Landowner Limited Liability Act of 2010 has been introduced by Colorado House Representative Curry and Senator Hodge on 1/14/2010 at http://www.leg.state.co.us/clics/cli...le=1086_01.pdf
and is likely a bill related to private commercial boating only company interest "Commercial Outfitter's Job Protection Act" bill to allow portage and use of the bed incidental for only their safety while boating but not fishing or other recreational activities.
HB 10-1086's language appears to strengthen only the land owner private title interest's limitation of liability over a water user public easement interest's expansion of liability.
There are 3 primary private interests and 2 primary public interests that will be involved in both this bill and the main event bill likely to be introduced within a short time:
1 Private land owner title interest
2 Private commercial outfitter boating only company interest
3 Private commercial outfitter wade/boat fishing company interest
1 Public boater interest
2 Public wade/boat fisherman interest
Score HB 10-1086 to benefit the private land owner title interest.
Our focus as public recreational water users, mainly public interest boaters and
fishers, should zero in on how the words and phrases, the language, of HB 10-1086 as well as the related upcoming bill, benefits or deters each of the 5 interests, both public and private, to shape any bill so that All Win
. Neither of these bills should gain our support, opposition or neutrality without reading and amending, if/as necessary, them, line by line, firsthand.
I know I will.
