Because there's going to be an impact on our rights, our way of life, then most definitely I think seeking our consent.... We need to understand what impacts there are to our rights. We need to minimize those impacts, and if at all possible avoid those impacts. It's protected under our Constitution.
With any means where the government is going to make a decision that may impact those rights, then you must seek our consent so that we understand what those impacts are. Consent may be a variety of different things. It could include ways where we can work with you to address those impacts and where we are able to avoid those impacts altogether.
That's a long answer, but I think you get my point.
