Anti-takings bill echoes unsuccessful 2006 ballot initiative

Idaho Statesman reporter Rocky Barker reports that new legislation from Rep. Ed Morse, R-Hayden, on regulatory takings echoes a 2006 initiative, Proposition 2, that Idaho voters rejected by a large margin, 76 percent no to 24 percent yes. Morse’s bill, HB 160, seeks to expand Idaho’s 2003 regulatory takings act to require that if a regulatory action cuts a property owner’s market value by 50 percent, the government would have to pay the owner or rescind the law or regulation; HB 160 is pending in the House State Affairs Committee.
