HOUSE COMMITTEE HEARS TESTIMONY ON INTERIOR-UTAH DEAL. On June 28, 2004, the House Resources Committee held a hearing in St. George, Utah, to discuss RS 2477 rights-of-way. Getting a balanced understanding of the issue was not on the committee’s agenda: nine of ten speakers invited to testify were local government interests, the State of Utah, or their lawyers, all virulently opposed to any limitations on rights-of-way on public lands.

Read testimony of Scott Groene, Executive Director of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance,  BLM’s Deputy Director Jim Hughes and Washington County Commissioner Alan Gardner.

Read a press report from the Deseret News.  The story was also reported in the St. George Spectrum, Salt Lake Tribune.
