Landowners and ranchers received rare news of relief last year from the U.S. Supreme Court. Far-flung accusations of environmental groups against landowners must now be heard with a healthy grain of salt. The question before the Court in Summers v. Earth Island Institute was just how great the role environmental activists should have in court proceedings regarding land use questions especially when those activists share no connection to the land in question.
Gov. Dave Freudenthal has ranked near the bottom of the Cato Institute’s Fiscal Policy Report Card on America’s Governors: 2008.
Freudenthal was among 13 governors to receive a D, and only Montana Gov. Brian Scheweitzer ranked lower on the D list. Three governors received As, 14 earned Bs, eight earned Cs and eight earned Fs.
