Is There a Legislative Cure for Hirst?

We remain resolved and determined to push forward bills to cure the attacks on water rights foisted upon the citizens of Washington State by an out of control environmental cartel.  Although the best bills have been stalled in their progress through our legislature, we will continue the fight through this session and into future sessions to restore exempt well rights in response to the supreme court decision commonly known as the Hirst decision...

Water Rights Where Do We Stand with Hirst?

The State Legislature has proposed several bills to correct the wrongs done by the Hirst Decision of the state supreme court.  CAPR is watching the process of the bills in the legislature and we provide an overview of these bills.  Review the bills and be sure to call your legislators to let them know your opinions of the bills and how important correcting the Hirst Decision, water and property rights are to you! 

The legislative hotline is 800 562 6000.

Seeking Justice by Electing Justices Who Respect the Constitution and the Rule of Law

Many persons seek the protection of their property rights and relief from over-reaching or misapplied regulatory actions and want to have that relief from our Judicial system.  But what if the highest court in our State has strayed from the rule of law and constitutional decision making and into the arena of problem solving with decisions best left to another branch of government, the legislature? 

Putting Pot in Its Place

At 7:00 pm on the evening of August 24th well over 80 concerned citizens attended a meeting at the Wabash Church meeting room in Auburn, rural King County.  They came to meet and discuss their grievances with the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB). The list of objections from rural property owners are the core questions regarding property values, and neighborhood safety.
