Good News from MS on Eminent domain bill

Under the proposal, the issue would be placed before Mississippi voters at the November 6th election. The proposal passes 116-to-2. It now goes to the Senate.

On January 3rd, the House approved a bill that says governments could not take private land for retail, industrial or residential developments, to increase the local tax base or to give the land to any public-private partnership.
