New Oregon Law Violates Equal Protection

I've read through the highlighted article, and I find it strange that the State of Oregon has not challenged the new law (Measure 37) on equal protection grounds. If the piece is correct, only owners of land prior to 1973 can make a claim against the state for land use issues.

"Oregonians whose families owned property before statewide land-use laws were imposed (beginning in 1973) can take advantage of the monetary and development relief offered under Measure 37, but those who bought land afterward cannot."

That sounds like a blatant violation of the equal protection portions of our Federal Law. Am I missing something?

I'll be back
