Nevada County, Calif. Ballot Measure

NPR's Andy Bowers reports that a fight in Nevada County, California, over a November ballot measure could energize the growing national property rights movement. The initiative, known as Measure D, would expand on the constitutional requirement for the government to pay residents for any property it takes from them. Measure D says even if the government doesn't actually take that property, but only restricts its use, it has to pay.
