I see the bill that would have bought easements next to Bear Butte has been killed (of course with the number of zombie bills in this year's session it will probably be back). I was against this bill on the grounds that have been posted all over the net... I thought the State had no business spending money to buy easements based on what were essentially religious reasons. If certain people think the area should be protected on religious grounds then let them pool their money to buy the easements.
