Fairness is a concept that influences human and business relationships. Without it, those relationships break down. That is exactly what has happened with eminent domain law in Texas, according to representatives from 16 Texas agricultural groups seeking eminent domain reform.
The first of several meetings organized by Texans for Property Rights was held in Jourdanton Thursday, Oct 27.
Landowners were briefed on the current state of eminent domain law and the efforts to change it in the next session of the Texas Legislature. The new coalition will push for a law that would require property-taking condemning entities that lose in court to pay the legal costs of affected property owners.
