Are We Damned to Lose Our Dams?

Cindy Alia, April 13, 2019

One significant and impressive way to turn back the tide on the flood of the green deal is citizen activism.  Well educated and informed citizens banding together reversed the Avista/Hydro One deal with information, science, and a passion to protect our clean hydropower, national security and independence. 

That same dedication is urgently needed by citizen activists now.  The craze of the most devoted and simplistically delusional green worriers is to continuously beat the drum of climate change to claim it requires our state’s dams must come down.

CAPR Attends Bill Signing for Representative Van Werven's HB 2307!

Citizens' Alliance for Property Rights (CAPR) was pleased to accept on behalf of our membership an invitation from Representative Luanne Van Werven to attend the signing of her bill 2307!  This marks an important moment in the work CAPR has done to promote property rights, and to promote the recognition of the substantive rights of property owners - the legislature must acknowledge the validity, or legality of its acts, and that law-making has consequences.  We are enthused to see this bill reflects these ideals!  Representative Van Werven has with this bill taken an important step in protecting property owners and their rights.
