Dick Mountjoy on Environment

 


Protect private property rights against eminent domain

The recent Supreme Court decision on eminent domain threatens every property owner in America. I will fight for federal legislation that protects private property rights and ensures that no property owner can be forced against their will to sell their land to a developer.

In State Senate, removed MBTE from water supply

Q: What accomplishments during your terms as state Senator are you particularly proud of?

A: I was the one who got rid of MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether). I was by myself on that issue. After 18 months, we finally got it out of the field, this poison in the water. I was a stand-alone on that one. I've done workers' comp. I was key in workers' comp reform in the late '80s.
