2017 Bringing Decision-making Home Conference
On Tuesday, March 28 through Thursday morning, March 30, 2017 KNRC members, legislators, authors and policy professionals from 11 states gathered at the United Wireless Arena & Conference Center in Dodge City, Kansas for the Bringing Decision-making Home Conference.
The 2017 conference was led by talk show host Trent Loos, and hosted nationally recognized speakers such as land-use attorney Karen Budd Falen, water law litigator Harriet Hageman of Hageman Law, P.C., and attorney Jonathan Wood of Pacific Legal Foundation. Also participating was author and speaker Elaine Willman, who presented on a little known, but highly problematic conflict between Indian tribes, local government & agriculture resulting from EPAs ‘Treatment As States’ Policy. Rounding out the agenda was a delightful and informative talk by land use and property rights historian Dr. Angus McIntosh, Director of the Range Allotment Owners Association.
