PLF attorney to present at Montana property rights conference

August 08, 2014 | By PAUL BEARD

The Montana Property Rights Conference will take place next week, on August 14 and August 15, at the Northern Hotel in Billings, Montana.  As a keynote speaker, I will open the conference at 1:00 p.m. with a discussion of environmental and land-use issues, including PLF’s United States Supreme Court win last year in Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District.

The program includes topics relating to water rights, the EPA’s efforts to protect the sage grouse, and the EPA’s attempt to expand the definition of, and its control over, so-called “waters of the United States.”
