A Twentieth Anniversary Celebration for the Property Rights Foundation of America®

The Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc., will celebrate its twentieth anniversary with a special dinner on Tuesday evening, April 8 at The Century House in Latham. William Perry Pendley, the President and CEO of Mountain State's Legal Foundation will deliver the evening address on "Defending Freedom in an Anti-Constitutional Era."

The Mountain States Legal Foundation in suburban Denver, Colorado, recently expanded coast to coast with its victorious defense of shallow conventional oil producers located in the Pennsylvania Oil Field in the Allegheny National Forest from non-jurisdictional federal regulation.

In February Mr. Pendley announced a lawsuit by Mountain States Legal Foundation against Governor Andrew Cuomo in conjunction with local counsel Scott R. Kurkoski of Levene, Gouldin & Thompson in Vestal on behalf of a coalition of 70,000 landowners who are waiting nearly six years for the Governor to release the final regulations to permit landowners to use their land for energy production from the deep Marcellus Shale

Early in March, the United States Supreme Court handed Mr. Pendley and the Mountain States Legal Foundation a big victory! The court ruled 8 to 1 in favor of Wyoming private property owner Marvin Brandt against the U. S. Forest Service in the "rails to trails" dispute litigated by Mr. Pendley.

Carol LaGrasse, the president of the property rights organization, said, "We'll be giving guest speaker William Perry Pendley a hero's welcome to the Property Rights Foundation of America's Twentieth Anniversary Dinner." The public is invited to join.

The Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc., is a non-profit educational foundation based in Stony Creek, New York, which has played a leading role in Adirondack and New York property rights issues, as well as nation-wide. See the free website:
