  • "LAND Responds to Minnesota Governor's Plan" - By Chuck Damschen, LAND Past President (Reprinted by permission from Landowners Association of North Dakota, January 2004, p. 3)
    LAND expresses concern over Minnesota Governor Pawlenty's expanded Conservation Reserve Enhancement Plan. Landowners are having negative experiences with perpetual easements. LAND favors short-term easements that can be renegotiated on a regular basis.

    The City of Red Wing, Minnesota, imposes administrative search warrants (searches without probable cause) on rental properties, collecting photos of the interior of residences (including even the inside of closets), and intending to post these on the Internet for police use. The right to privacy, to be secure in your home from searches without probably cause, is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

  • Carol W. LaGrasse"New Wave of UNESCO World Heritage Sites Proposed" - By Carol W. LaGrasse (PRFA Position Brief, June 2007)
    This spring, the National Park Service announced that 36 locations in the United States have been proposed for UNESCO World Heritage Sites, adding to the twenty that already are designated in this country. Such international recognition potentially threatens private property rights because preservationists could exploit the designation to stop the use of land in the region just beyond a site's borders.
