Property Rights

Good news on the property rights front. State legislators, led by a Republican from Broomfield, are proposing legislation restricting eminent domain to public projects, not private ones. I'd personally prefer to see an exception for areas that are truly blighted. Even then, though, one could argue that a truly devastated area can be bought cheap.

The cities are going to fight this tooth and nail, so it's also a good time for the citizenry to prove that local government is more responsive than state or federal government, by telling them to cut it out.
