Compact opponents masquerading false info

| February 9, 2023 12:00 AM

My barber told me people are freaking out about losing water rights to their home wells. Opponents of the CSKT Water Compact are scaring people with lies.

The CSKT Compact protects all current irrigation uses below 100 gallons per minute and protects all current non-irrigation uses on and off the Flathead Reservation.

No Compact opponent has shown any proponent argument is wrong or shown any legal argument that will win a CSKT water rights lawsuit without the Compact.

The Compact is a common-sense solution to tribal reserved water rights that will save Montana taxpayers millions of dollars in legal costs, and it protects Montana from water calls by Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Therefore, I invited Dr. Annie Bukacek, Dr. Al Olszewski, and Attorney General Austin Knudsen (and anyone else) to present their arguments against the Compact. And I reserved Chapter 10 of my book, Montana’s Last Indian Water Compact, for them to show their case in print.

You can read, print, download, and comment on the preprint of my book, here:

If they do not respond to this invitation, they will confirm they are masquerading false information about the Compact.
