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.  

Response to Hirst Ruling

Our mission is to maintain respect for our constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties on property, and to achieve restoration where already damaged, mainly by over-regulation at all levels of government. To this end, we are working for a system of rules on property that is reasonable, clear, without conflicts among regulations, and actually accomplishes their necessary legitimate public purposes, including reasonable levels of protection of resources and environmental quality, including genuine fish habitat. 

Consider the work and success of CAPR as you give this year! You can help!

As CAPR enters our 14th year, we are reflecting on our many recent successes in our efforts to identify, educate, train, and mobilize property rights advocates, and to restore and defend property rights. Our ongoing efforts and successes in 2016 encourage us to keep working for the rights of all! Please help CAPR in this fight for freedom!

In Whatcom County alone, many people have been forced to euthanize or give away their pet goats, sheep, horses, llamas, or other farm animals to avoid the targeted legal and financial threats.

Tales of Tyranny: The Arthur Thomas Story

This is the first of a series of videos, Tales of Tyranny, produced by Citizens' Alliance for Property Rights (CAPR) in Washington State.  These short video stories about people who have been harmed by abusive government regulation, zealous prosecution of  ridiculous rules, criminalization of minor code infractions, and the destruction of property rights.  Ordinary citizens have been harmed by government as policy.
