Property Wrongs: Lessons from Oregon

Report by Seattle-based Sightline Institute documents a growing backlash against "property rights" initiatives in Oregon communities deeply affected by Oregon's Measure 37 and implications for western states.

"Property Wrongs," a report released on October 12 by Seattle-based Sightline Institute documents a growing backlash against "property rights" initiatives by chronicling five Oregon communities deeply affected by Oregon's Measure 37, a "property-rights" bill that passed in 2004.

The report also examines the implications for Washington and other states considering similar initiatives this fall, including Idaho, Montana, Arizona, and California, which are all modeled after Measure 37.
