Holidays are not slowing the rightward march of the Bonner County Property Rights Council. Monday night, the controversial Property Rights Council is sponsoring a “public seminar” on “The Theoretical Basis for a Property Rights Council.” The featured speaker is Sandpoint-based James L. Payne. Mr. Payne is a frequent contributor to the polluter-friendly and Koch-connected Independent Institute and the Foundation for Economic Education. It is unclear how this seminar got officially scheduled — the PRC meeting scheduled for last week was cancelled and prior meetings made no mention of the seminar. Mr. Payne’s anti-government views are not exactly mainstream. For example, he is critical of government spending, sure. But he’s even opposed to FEMA and government-supported disaster aid/Terry J.

Question: Do you expect Kootenai County to follow the leader and adopt a conservative watchdog group like the Bonner County Property Rights Council?
