We’re Tromping on Private Property Rights for What?

2nd Grade Bike Rack has an interesting post.

HB198 has bi-partisan support both among the proposers and the the votes that moved it out of the House.

Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame.

  1. From my inbox:

    As the Legislature presents bills to control personal and private rights of individuals in Montana, our State Senator Terry Murphy, made the following statement in this week’s Jefferson County Courier:

    “If we ever get to where the majority decides it can take rights away from groups who do unapproved things, then all of us better get very worried. We could each be part of the next unapproved group.”

    And, that my friends, is a direct quote!”

    HB 198 was supported by Democrats because the governor lied about the MSTI project being a job creator. It is not.

    And I just got a letter today from Baucus (dated Feb. 1). In the first sentence he lies twice about MSTI. He writes, “[MSTI] is being designed to deliver electricity throughout Montana and our neighboring states.”

    First, none of the electricity carried by MSTI will be available to Montanans. Second, California and Nevada are not “neighboring states.”

    So many lies have been told, then repeated over and over, by NorthWestern Energy and Democratic politicians that you get worn out batting them down. And they never admit that they’ve been wrong or caught in a lie.

  3. I’m embarassed that the dems who signed onto that bill didn’t read the thing. Clearly geared at giving condemnation authority to private corporations.

    For shame.

    Even worse? A Two Missoula legislators are on the list.

    Franke Wilmer voted “yea” on HB 198. I’m uncertain as to exactly why, but I have a good idea. I’ll ask her and report back when I get the answer. I just don’t think this thing is as black and white as portrayed.
