HB 3 - Eminent Domain

HB 3 Eminent Domain. The bill allows voters to consider an amendment to the state constitution to prohibit the government from seizing private property via eminent domain except for public uses. The amendment also requires that just compensation be provided for all property and in the case of condemnation cases, and in the case of property owners the right to trial by jury is established. Civitas Action believes HB 3 helps to protect property rights and limits abuses by the government such as seizing property via Eminent Domain and selling it to private developers. The vote for freedom is yes.
