Eminent Domain Bills

The Baltimore Business Journal recently ran a story about a number of bills introduced into the Maryland legislature which seek to limit the Supreme Court's landmark eminent domain decision in Kelo v. New London. Currently, there are 7 bills in the Maryland General Assembly which seek to limit the scope of Kelo in some way or another. The BBJ article quotes Thomas Saquella, President of the Maryland Retailers Association, as saying that the proposed bills "include everything from bills that call for doing away with this governmental power altogether, to more modest proposals that offer more safeguards for private property owners."
