Representative Joe Schmick on Hirst and the Last Day of Session!

In what may be the biggest attack on our property rights in my lifetime, the Legislature was unable to come to an agreement on a fix to allow rural landowners access to water via permit exempt wells.  Despite a 105-day regular session and three, 30-day special sessions, many rural landowners in our state will not have access to water and will see their investments decimated and their dreams shattered.  At the same time, many other property owners will see their property taxes go up as a result of the impending property tax shift.

Seize The Opportunity of SSB 5239 to Fix Poor Hirst Decision!

Representative Jim Walsh of Aberdeen provides an insightful editorial in The Daily News. He wants the legislature to seize the opportunity to make sense of Hirst by passing SSB 5239! Thank you Representative Walsh for your clear look at the facts and your article!

Hirst and Endangered Rural Democrats

Clear and honest article in Washington Wire by Senator Sheldon. Basically what he is asking is will urban based democrats, heedless of the destruction wrought by their ideology throw rural democrats under the bus and themselves as well as the urban democrat fidelity to the environmental cartel finally costs too much for their urban constituents? The takings and cost of Hirst has been a step too far; it is time for democrats to save themselves, the property rights of rural citizens, and the pocketbooks of city citizens with a yes vote on a clean (no amendments) SSB 5239.
