Amendment 74-Compensation to Owners for Decreased Property Value – OPPOSE
Vote NO on A-74! Of all the measures to make it to the ballot this year, this wins the prize for most insidious. Billed as safeguarding private property and funded by Oil and Gas industry dollars, Amendment 74 is dangerously broad and would have sweeping consequences. If passed, this measure would constrain the ability of state and local governments to regulate activities on any private property. It could effectively paralyze local government due to lawsuits challenging programs, projects, rules, policies, or zonings. Further it would make it extremely difficult for the state or any local government to address community concerns such as environmental health and safety, and any action taken could become the subject of expensive lawsuits and cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Please join us in voting NO.
