This seems in direct contradiction to the land-owner compensation measure passed last year.
Environmental groups and governments won a key victory Thursday when the Oregon Supreme Court ruled a timber company should not be compensated for state restrictions that limited logging to protect a bald eagle nest.
The high court said regulation of private property for public purposes is not the same as taking the property, which would warrant compensation.
This is a HUGE win for environmentalists. The judges then went on to say that the ruling would not impact the application and meaning of the passed measure 37, but I really think that’s just delusional.
Is it just me, or wasn’t the whole battle over property rights and takings last year about regulations and how they are a form of taking.
