Utah Farm Bureau -- powerful allies

The Utah Farm Bureau has been very active in urging restraint in the decisions whether to allow SNWA's proposed water exportation scheme.

A delegation from UFB recently spent several days in Washington DC where they met with members of Utah's Congressional delegation and with officials from federal agencies such as Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The SNWA pipeline proposal was on the agenda of most meetings.

Randy Parker, CEO, also attended the meeting of the Interim Committee on Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environment where the pipeline proposal was discussed and resolution in support of waiting for the best possible science was passed unanimously (click here).

You can find an article (PDF) about the pipeline project in the UFB News.

Thanks, UFB for your strong support and interest, as per usual, in Utah agriculture issues.
