Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest
Abstract:
American legislative bodies and juries of laymen are founded on the concept that what a reasonable man would do is what will be done. In actuality the synergistic effects of prejudice, politics, and polarized language rarely allow this to occur. The result has been conflict of interest statutorily mandated on natural resource governing boards and a lack of expertise in the courtroom. Further contempt has developed between citizen and expert and between legislator and bureaucrat. I propose to explore the operative mechanism in the situation and discuss possible future roles for both citizen and expert as well as tools which could be utilized by them.
