The Supreme Court on April 22 agreed with CRC's position and upheld a building moratoria put in place to protect Lake Tahoe from pollution, rejecting a takings challenge brought by more than 400 Tahoe property owners. The ruling is a major victory that preserves the ability of local governments to protect fragile resources from environmental harm.

CRC filed a brief in the Tahoe case on behalf of the nation's governors, mayors and other state and local officials. The case is Tahoe-Sierra Preservation Council v. Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.
