HB 183; 2R - Repeal Map Act

The primary purpose of this bill is to repeal the Corridor Protection Act, which prevents an owner of property located within a corridor map from making any changes to their property. A corridor map outlines areas designated for possible future highway construction. Some landowners have been prevented from making alterations or additions to their property for several years due to the Corridor Protection Act. Civitas believes the conservative position is that the protection of private property rights is vital to civil society, and that the map act infringes upon the property rights of individuals. The conservative vote is yes.
