GMA  Finding -- Intent -- 2012 1st sp.s. c 1: "The legislature finds that significant opportunities exist to modify programs that provide for management and protection of the state's natural resources, including the state's forests, fish, and wildlife, in order to streamline regulatory processes and achieve program efficiencies while at the same time increasing the sustainability of program funding and maintaining current levels of natural resource protection. The legislature intends to update provisions relating to natural resource management and regulatory programs including the hydraulic project approval program, forest practices act, and state environmental policy act, in order to achieve these opportunities."

Protection of private property.

(1) The state attorney general shall establish by October 1, 1991, an orderly, consistent process, including a checklist if appropriate, that better enables state agencies and local governments to evaluate proposed regulatory or administrative actions to assure that such actions do not result in an unconstitutional taking of private property. It is not the purpose of this section to expand or reduce the scope of private property protections provided in the state and federal Constitutions. The attorney general shall review and update the process at least on an annual basis to maintain consistency with changes in case law.

     (2) Local governments that are required or choose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 and state agencies shall utilize the process established by subsection (1) of this section to assure that proposed regulatory or administrative actions do not result in an unconstitutional taking of private property.

     (3) The attorney general, in consultation with the Washington state bar association, shall develop a continuing education course to implement this section.

     (4) The process used by government agencies shall be protected by attorney client privilege. Nothing in this section grants a private party the right to seek judicial relief requiring compliance with the provisions of this section.

THANK YOU PEARL RAINS HEWETT  for the endless hours of research and dedication spent in providing the public with awareness of  the "Big Corp/Government Socialist/Fascist" green scam control policies in the making. The last attempt to strip all private ownership and public land use away from the population of  US citizens "for other purposes".  Pearls knowledge is, as CAPR13 Pres. Mr. Spees put's it,  "Beyond The Call of Duty".  We urge you to please help support these volunteer legal research allies "Citizens Alliance for Property Rights" (CAPR) and take a few bucks and throw their way. These volunteers are struggling to survive like the rest of us and are willing to share their hard earned knowledge to help preserve YOUR Constitutional Rights as a U.S. Citizen and  FREE American.  Spare what you can. Every PENNY helps in a PENNILESS society.  Please concider a donation or membership. The information they provide on a daily basis is invaluable in our fight against UN/US federal control over  OUR nation and the confiscation of our natural resources and land restrictions being forced on private property owners by denying full or partial use of it.  The U.S./UN Dictate Governments have NO existing legal right to do this.  The Re-elected are quickly working behind the scenes, out of public view to do everything they can to change our government policies to save THEIR jobs. They are thieves out to strip us naked, of all idenity and freedom. We are nothing more then THEIR mealticket and are regarded by them as such. 1.4 trillion added taxes have already been tacked onto next years hike (immediately after the elections) and that's only the beginning.
Please help these volunteers that dedicate their time helping you.
