The Kelo Backlash Continues


Tags Big GovernmentInterventionism

As I pointed out in "The Kelo Backlash Begins," Alabama was the first state to curb eminent domain abuse after the Supreme Court's infamous Kelo decision. Now we see that in the election last month voters in seven states (FL, GA, MI, NV, NH, ND, SC) approved constitutional amendments prohibiting the use of eminent domain to transfer land to private parties for "economic development." It would be ideal, of course, to have no eminent domain at all, but the less the better.
