Robin Rivett, president of the Pacific Legal Foundation, will talk about “Foundations of Freedom” when he speaks at the annual dinner of the Yolo County Taxpayers Association. The event will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 21, at the Hotel Woodland, 436 Main St. in Woodland.
Rivett’s remarks will highlight the effects of regulations on private property rights and taxes.
News these days is filled with the budget problems of state and local governments, where spending levels set during better economic times are now constrained by declining revenue. As a result, cuts have been made, and proposals to increase taxes are numerous. But while elected officials struggle to balance budgets, non-elected boards and commissions continue to impose new standards and regulations that pass on higher fees and service costs to both local governments and struggling taxpayers.
Rivett works in the midst of this regulatory debate, which puts him in position to explain how regulations are eroding our rights and picking our pocketbooks, a Taxpayers Association news release says.
The event will start at 6 p.m. with a social hour, followed by a buffet dinner at 7 p.m. at the program at 8 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person.
