Eye On Boise

Eminent domain bill applauded

The House just voted unanimously in favor of HB 555, legislation sponsored by a group of legislators headed by House Speaker Bruce Newcomb plus the governor’s and attorney general’s offices, that puts limitations on the use of the power of eminent domain for private parties, urban renewal or economic development purposes. All the bipartisan testimony was in favor, no one spoke against the measure, and it passed 67-0. It now moves to the Senate.
