Just ran across this. I haven't really digested it yet but it appears to be an anti Eminent Domain executive order.

Now it doesn't say that property can't be taken but it does seem to indicate that it can't be soley for economic gain of another private entity (which was my big beef with the previous rulings).

Is this in regards to some corporations getting eminent domain orders for people to to sell their homes to them? I hope so. I know it was done up in Connecticut in order for a large builder to come in and develop a large complex. All the small homeowners had to give up their homes.

that's what it appears to be. Maybe we won one after all.

Yeah, I like this. George W. did a good one there.

Does this only apply to Federal eminent domain taking, and still allow, State, County, City/Town eminent domain that is like the Connecticut one already mentioned? (taking a house from someone so they can put in a higher valued house for taxes.) It didn't quite gel in my head.

But good for the little guy, against abuse. When the supreme court ruled on this some time ago. I almost threw up is disgust.

Finally, something he has down that doesn't sell the people to the rich.

One down, another dozen or so to go. When he goes after price gouging oil companies we know the apocalypse has come.

I hope this is legit and all encompasing because I have felt incredibly sympathy for you 'merkins who had to put up with this BS.

Heres hoping for a good outcome!

Bush's exec order seems to be in support of the laymans interpretation of the constitution as written by the framers of it.

Being a federal policy statement it unfortunately does not overide individual state law dealing with this issue.

Most if not all of the abuse has been at the local and state level - I can't recollect any federal domain issues involving handover to private concerns.

Its a good message though - hopefully encouraging legislation in the various statehouses.

Executive Decision

It only affects federal agencies, but it's still a good move in my opinion.

At the very least, it establishes that the Bush administration doesn't support the kind of wholesale robbery under color of authority that the Supreme Court has encouraged with its recent decision.

Isn't there a case somewhere where Walmart bought some land to develop a store and now the town is trying to force them to sell the land to someone else? I don't know if this fits into the same ilk as what is being dicussed or not or what this order addresses.

Federal vs State/Local law is always an interesting thing. What's desired by the people in Montana might not be the same as what is desired by the people of New York.
