War on the West – Attacks by Federal Overregulation


Our radio broadcast for Tuesday, February 27th, 2018  will feature Property Rights Attorney, Constitutional Law expert, and Wyoming Gubernatorial Candidate Harriet Hageman, and Local Government Consultant and Property Rights Advocate Jim Carlson, who return to our radio program for an encore discussion of the war on the West and attacks on private property by federal agencies and overregulation.  We will look at conservation easements as tools by sustainable development groups to lock up private property from development and all mining and mineral development; meanwhile they lobby Congress and Federal agencies for more restrictions and regulations that make those conserved lands less and less productive.

This promises to be a very candid discussion of a subject that impacts all Americans, not just rural landowners.  Private property is a cornerstone of our free republic, and the continual reduction and eventual elimination of those rights will eventually impact everyone and needs to be understood as a basic freedom that must not be sacrificed.

Jim CarlsonMr. Carlson’s 27 year portfolio includes programs that affect federal administrative agencies; formation and execution of legislative strategies; technical, statutory, and historical research; environmental compliance; large-scale infrastructure project management; and, ground-up creation and management of 4 statewide associations. His ability to merge reconnaissance, technical analysis, political strategy and strategic directives into tactical, natural-resource policy initiatives that influence government decision-making is recognized by industry, legislative and political circles.

Mr. Carlson’s career began in the electric utility industry where he gained a track record in project management, regulatory negotiations, water research, environmental policy, and participation in leadership circles, including the Steering Committee of the Utilities Solid Waste Activities Group (USWAG), and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). Mr. Carlson has been a central figure in the start-up of four statewide associations, two consulting firms, and he presently is working on what he hopes will be a framework for a national association of local governments that will engage federal agencies on natural-resource and administrative policy issues.
