JOINT BOARD OF CONTROL CAPITULATION
This post is a followup to the post titled Attention Irrigators:  What a Difference a Few Years Makes.  

That article demonstrated a complete captitulation of the Joint Board of Control’s and the state’s position on the CSKT demands for all the water in western Montana.  That post can be found at the following link:

STATE CAPITULATION
The next installment is the attached document that came from a Freedom of Information Act request.

This is a 02/21/08 memo from John Tubbs to Susan Cottingham.  At the time, Susan Cottingham was staff director of the Compact Commission.   Mr. Tubbs is now head of the DNRC.

This memo was intended to set sideboards for the CSKT compact negotiations, and includes a fairly long list of criteria for negotiations.  So comparing this list to the compact documents we see today, a reasonable person should ask what in the world has changed in five years to bring about a complete capitulation by the state? Please check out the document at the following link:
