HB 1188 Passes with Amendments

The ‘Right to Trespass’ bill passed the full Senate today on an amendment that directs the Colorado water Congress to study the issue.

The amendment states that the State “recognizes the need to study and potentially clarify the existing law concerning civil and criminal trespass by boaters on rivers and streams flowing through private property in Colorado.”

The CWC is directed to study the issue, taking into account the “legal, economic, environmental and law enforcement issues related to boating through private property.”. The participants and procedures for the study will be determined by the CWC Board. The study shall be completed by Oct. 2010 and submitted to the General Assembly no later than November 30, 2010.

This post will be updated as we sort through the amendment and the potential is has in the House.

One response to this post.
