Good for the Governor to stick by his guns since it is an important issue for
those out in Western Utah. It may be a desert but there are agricultural
purposes for the last 150 years for some. Las Vegas needs to pony up with what
it takes to be a part of a compact that would be similar to the Colorado River
basin flow from over 100 years ago. Even California has found out through the
courts that Utah has some rights to water that should be defended. The AG
sitting in his office wielding his lost sword or broken sword doesn't help
on this matter. The Legislative members need the expertise of the AG but he
already has issues with people and corporations from Nevada. If he raises his
head too much the State of Nevada may find some other information about our AG
that may not be positive.The Governor needs good advice, not advice
from someone who has ethical issues, at least. Time will tell after tomorrows
Interim Session with a different type of discussion than normal budgetary or a
list of issues.The AG was even missing from the GOP convention in
The Utah legislators are seeing dollar signs instead of common sense and doing
the right thing for the people of Utah and the residents of Northern Nevada who
also shared the same response. Las Vegas will have to learn to be more
conservative in the development and growth and stop thinking they can push
people around for their own selfish greed. It was a cooperative decision of
Northern Nevada and Utah to stop Las Vegas from stripping people's water
from them. Water used in and near the aquifer will replenish the aquifer, water
diverted 1,000 miles away does not recycle to those who need it to survive. Nevada needs to set some priority for resource uses, fun and games are
not life sustaining needs, farming, ranching, and water are resources for life
for everyone, not just one big golf course. Liveing or dead, Nevada needs to
make some hard choices of serving the people or corporate Las Vegas.
Thank you governor. This will not end the fight, but it will signify that Utah
does not give away their water. Both Utah and Nevada should adopt water
conservation programs similar to those of Phoenix.
Gold equals water. The tables at a Las Vegas casino never has water on it.
They need to put their money where their mouth is.Money equals you
can buy anything but water.
