This morning, Goldwater Institute attorney Nick Dranias is arguing before the Ninth Circuit on behalf of Tombstone, Arizona, defending the town’s right to access its water supply against hostile action by the Obama Administration.
A devastating combination of wildfires and monsoons has ravaged Tombstone’s water supply, leaving only 3 of 25 springs in operation. Despite a declared state of emergency, the Obama administration still refuses to let the town repair its water lines, which originate in federal wilderness area, for fear of disturbing the Mexican spotted owl.
Goldwater Institute President & CEO Darcy Olsen discussed the case on Fox & Friends this morning.
