09/07/2010: "Tuesday: Eminent Domain Discussion"


ig_Bill_Maurer-001 (31k image)Bill Maurer, a Washington Policy Center Adjunct Scholar and the Executive Director of the Institute for Justice,Washington
Chapter, will be in Friday Harbor Tuesday night (Grange Bld, 5:30)as the guest speaker at a CAPR monthly dinner.

The public is invited to hear Maurer give an overview of the potential for eminent domain abuses in Washington State.

The agenda includes Dinner (donations accepted) at 5:30, introductions at 6:00 pm, followed by the discussion. There will also be a question period.

In the 2005 Kelo v. New London decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. Constitution does not prevent state and local governments from seizing homes and small businesses and transferring them to private developers to build luxury condominiums and big-box stores. The opponents of eminent domain reform in Washington State say that Kelo does not apply here and that the Washington Constitution protects us from the kinds of abuse that occurred in Kelo. They are wrong. Unfortunately, Washington law is rife with opportunities for eminent domain abuse.

Citizens’ Alliance for Property Rights is a non-partisan political action committee organized to allow individual citizens and existing organizations to work together defending property rights. We support equitable and scientifically sound land use regulations that do not force minority groups of private property owners to pay for public benefits enjoyed by all.
