ALERT: Senators, Vote NO on HB 1188

We have been notified that HB 1188 the ‘Right to Trespass’ bill’s hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee has been switched to this coming MONDAY, MARCH 15 at 1:30PM.   Please plan to be in Denver if possible to attend the committee hearing in person. We need all hands on deck for this measure if we have any hope of killing it.

We need as many “boots and hats” in the hearing room as possible to counteract the numerous rafting interests that will be present and to let Judiciary Committee members know how important this issue is to agriculture, landowners and property rights.

We also encourage you to use this ALERT to contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to urge them to vote “NO” on HB 1188. If you have the time, please personalize your message to the senators so that they know that you really care and that you are watching their vote in this important issue.

We would also ask that you forward this alert to your entire list of friends, family and neighbors so that they can also contact their senators! You do not need to be a member of Farm Bureau to use this ALERT system, just someone who cares about private property rights.   Do not hesitate and let your voice be heard!

    To the guilty parties:
    I have lived in Colorado 68 years, born and raised on a cattle ranch in Western Colorado. HB 1188 is a far reaching assult on private property rights. Buy moving the hearings on this bill to Monday March 15 is a slap in the face to all of us that went all out to get people to the Capital on March 17th to protest this takings bill.We had a lot of people from all over the state coming in. I am the president of two county Board of Directors who at this point are very angry at those who pulled this stunt. Shame on you and I hope you all loose your jobs. You need to consider those of us who own the land.

    Dear Senators:
    I am a private land owner in Western Colorado with a creek running through our property. We already have enough problems with fisherman and hunters trespassing on our property without permission. Most of these people do not respect the land owner and leave their trash for us to pickup. HB1188 gives more people the right to do this. Have you thought about stream bank erosion and polution of the waters caused by rafters climbing in and out of the waters? I do not believe that we need any more Goverment interference in our property rights. Rafters and farmers and ranchers should be able to work out their own problems. How would these people like it if we had picnics or walked all over their yards and left our trash for them to pickup without asking permission. I ask you to vote NO on HB 1188. Angela L. Ryden
