Opinion: Arizona and other Colorado River basin states are darned if they comment and darned if they don’t.

By Joanna Allhands | Arizona Republic

Arizona has less than a week to weigh in on how the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation should step in to prop up Lake Mead, a significant water source for the state.

Yet the governor’s office says it hasn’t started preparing comments. And that appears to be the stance every other Colorado River basin state is taking: Don’t think about making comments. Don’t talk about making comments. Comments are just a myth.

Why such reluctance to weigh in on something that could have such deep, long-term implications for each state?
