Note: The FJBC held a series of public meetings on February 4th and 5th, to “sell” irrigators on their FIP Agreement. It was interesting that there really wasn’t much of a sales job, and the FJBC tended to defer much of the discussion / comments to Jay Weiner, Assistant Attorney General for the state of Montana and counsel for the Compact Commission. This was a theme at all four meetings. Remember, the state has been telling the public they are not a party to this agreement, however all of a sudden, Mr Weiner has become a spokesperson for it at the FJBC meetings. We also couldn’t help but notice at the FJBC meeting in Ronan, Mr. Weiner was very cozy with irrigation project management and some of the joint board commissioners. Interesting how that goes, considering how these same board members voted recently.
