Texas eminent domain update

Last special session, these measures didn't get anywhere, but today, Governor Rick Perry expanded the mandate of the current session to include the issue of eminent domain.

Tonight, the Senate passed a bill that would limit the use of eminent domain. The measure is similar to the one passed before (see previous posts w/ commentary here). That bill failed because the Senate and House couldn't agree on a final version (the House wanted tougher restrictions).

Again, I guess we'll have to wait and see.
