This article presents information related to a property rights law in the United States. When Oregon voters approved a so-called property rights law in November 2005, they jarred that state's decades-old reputation for having the strictest land-use reputation for having the strictest land-use rules in the nation. They also inspired property rights advocates in Washington to imitate the new law. In January 2005 some of the state's most powerful interest groups gathered in Olympia to consider an initiative similar to Oregon's Measure 37.
