Eminent Domain Reform in 2017

Button Summary   Button Flier

Eminent domain and the condemnation process is not a willing buyer and willing seller transaction.

It is necessary to make further improvements to the laws that govern the use of eminent domain so that Texas landowners can have more assurance that this process is fair and respectful of their private property rights when they are forced to sell their land. These improvements should include:

Reimbursement of Landowner Costs and Expenses
