Legislature right to limit eminent domain

Posted: Tuesday, March 21, 2006

The Alaska Legislature is correct in restricting the improper use of eminent domain. Eminent domain was intended to be used to allow the government to take private property for public use with payment of just compensation to the owner.

The government should never take property from a private owner to transfer to another private owner for any reason. The use of eminent domain should only be used for its original intended purpose so the government can build schools, roads, parks and other governmental needs.

I am glad I live in a state when the legislature is looking out for small property owners.
