Legislation to Curb Eminent Domain Abuse on the House Floor Today

The Private Property Rights Protection Act, H.R. 1689, is scheduled for action today in the House of Representatives. The bill is a response to the Supreme Court's decision in the Kelo v. New London (2005). Perhaps by coincidence, Little Pink House, which tells the story of Susette Kelo and her fight against eminent domain abuse, comes out on DVD and digital tomorrow.

Support the Private Property Rights Protection Act, H.R. 1689

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representatives and urge them to cosponsor the Private Property Protection Act, H.R. 1689, introduced by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.). The bill would put strict limitations on the federal, state and local governments from exercising its power of eminent domain for economic development.
