Inevitable outcome

There’s an old saying that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and that’s certainly the case with Mora County and its community rights ordinance.

A divided Mora County Commission adopted the ordinance in 2013. To her credit, Commissioner Paula Garcia voted against the measure.

Besides permanently banning oil and gas drilling, the ordinance sought to strip corporations of rights the U.S. Supreme Court has determined they are entitled to.
