Property rights conference coming up

ALBANY Property rights proponents will meet next week in Albany to discuss many topics of interest to North Country residents and others.

The 11th annual National Conference on Private Property Rights is this Saturday, Oct.13, at the Holiday Inn Turf in Albany.

Registration is open to those who wish to hear nationally recognized experts Discuss Forging Ahead for Private Property Rights.

The Property Rights Foundation of America is bringing noted speakers to discuss a gamut of topics with the common thread of private property rights, ranging from communities and farmers facing off environmental preservation to international treaties threatening U.S. individual rights.

Roger Pilon, director of the Center for Constitutional Studies at the Cato Institute, will give the opening address on the Supreme Courts narrow view of property owners rights, including those under eminent domain.

The keynote luncheon address will be given by William Perry Pendley, founder of the Mountain States Legal Foundation. During the packed day, discussions will also center on navigable waterways, corporations versus the free market, irrational environmental regulation, small business and property rights, eco-terrorism, and national landscape preservation.

This is a hands on conference where attendees can mingle with the speakers at the buffet breakfast and evening reception, sit with them at the full luncheon, or discuss practical ways to organize against the tide of legislation threatening landowners and homeowners across the nation.

Registration for the full day from the 8 a.m. breakfast to the 5 p.m. reception includes all meals and the full proceedings mailed to every participant.

For more information, call Carol W. LaGrasse at 696-5748.
