This is the June 13, 1995 hearing on "Private Property Rights-Part II," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Task Force on Private Property Rights of the Committee on Resources. From the opening statement of Lamar Smith: "Private property rights are a basic civil right and as essential to the free and decent society as the right to practice one's religion, speak out freely, and defend oneself in court. [...] These hearings are necessary because over the past 20 years the Federal Government has not respected this basic civil right. Too often the Government has taken private property, refused to compensate the landowner, and left the private property owner with a worthless title and a property tax bill." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James Ayer, Brian Bishop, Melvin R. Brown, Lorraine Bucklin, Bill Burgess, Benjamin Cone Jr., Joseph N. De Raismes, Mary Fattig, Hank Graddy, David Guernsey, Marilyn Hayman, Cheryl Johnson, Mark Johnston, Mark Killian, Robert Kleeman, Carol La Grasse, Wallace McGregor, Alice Menks, Terri Moffett, Georgiana Murray, Mack Birkmaier, Sharon Beck, Sally Ormsby, Gail Phillips, Bill Pickell, Margery B. Pinkerton, Marianne W. Fowler, David Allen Smith, Sherry Sullenberger, Richard Welsh.
