Sen. Allard gets high score

U.S. Senator Wayne Allard , R-Colo., has been named a champion of private property rights by the League of Private Pro-erty Voters based on his voting record in the U.S. Senate concerning private property during the 106th Congress.

"It is an honor to be recognized by the League of Private Property Voters with this designation, I have long been a supporter of private property rights," Allard said. "Having grown up on a ranch in Colorado and been a small business owner, I understand the importance of protecting the rights of ranchers, farmers and property owners. As a federal office holder, I take very seriously my responsibility to preserve and protect what our founding fathers saw as a fundamental right for all people to own land without government infringement."

Allard received a 100 percent rating from the league based on eleven votes conducted in the U.S. Senate between 1999 and 2000 during the last session of Congress. U.S. Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, R-Colo., also received a 100 percent rating by the league.
