Eminent Domain and the Landscapes of Texas
A new study looks at the role of eminent domain and condemnation in the changing landscapes of Texas and the Hill Country. Are private companies taking advantage of loose regulations on the use of eminent domain to abuse private property rights? The Texas Hill Country is no stranger to pipelines, transmission lines, roadways and municipal utility districts that use eminent domain for routing infrastructure. Are there improvements to be made to our current system to ensure equity, fairness and a just process for the private landowner?
