Farmers and ranchers prevailed this week when the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of landowner property rights in the case of PPL v. Montana. This decision puts ownership of streambeds and stream banks in the hands of their rightful owners.* http://westernfarmpress.com/government/supreme-court-streambed-decision-protects-landowners
"This decision also helps ensure that farmers and ranchers will not have to pay government for the use of land or water from streambeds that run alongside or through their property. This week's decision is a win for Farm Bureau members, farmers and ranchers nationwide and all private property owners."
The American Farm Bureau Federation filed a friend-of-the-court brief along with the Montana Farm Bureau in the case. Colorado Farm Bureau and Utah Farm Bureau also filed briefs in the case in support of the petitioning landowners.
