COOMWA Receives Award

The Rodney & Laurel McFarland Award was given to Betsy Howe, Founder of COOMWA. Given by Citizens Alliance for Property Rights (CAPR), the annual award is given … “For unwavering dedication to, and relentless pursuit of, the preservation and restoration of property rights”. The award was to be presented at CAPR’s annual banquet in October 2020. That event will be rescheduled for Spring 2021. The passage of SB5503 in the 2019 legislature was the justification for the award. The involvement of septic system owners and every elected official in the State Legislature was the focus of COOMWA for 3 years. With direction and support from CAPR, the legislation became law in July 2019.
