HB 3; 3R - Eminent Domain

HB 3 Eminent Domain This bill would amend the state constitution to re-define the authorized use of eminent domain to “public use”, from the current “public use or benefit.” It would also require “just compensation” be paid to the landowner, the compensation to be determined by a jury upon request.

Civitas believes in the protection of property rights and in limiting the means by which government infringes upon those rights. The conservative vote is yes.
