  • a French-owned company faces powerful local opposition to its plan for a wind farm in a Vermont national forest;
  • a bill pending in the California legislature would prevent individual counties from banning the growing of genetically modified crops; and
  • city and county governments across the county are reacting to the U.S. Supreme Court's Kelo eminent domain decision by bolstering private property protections.
