Senate panel advances eminent domain reform


The Associated Press

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A Senate panel has advanced long-awaited legislation meant to stop eminent domain abuses.

The bill, discussed for two years, aims to protect homeowners from developers seeking to take land for private redevelopment.

Sen. Ronald Rice, the sponsor, said the bill would redefine what property can be seized for redevelopment and require fair compensation if eminent domain is used.

The bill can now be considered by the full Senate. The Assembly hasn't considered the bill, but it advanced eminent domain reforms in 2006.

Under eminent domain, governments have power to seize private property for public projects or to promote private economic redevelopment.

A 2005 U.S. Supreme Court ruling gave wide latitude to local governments wanting to seize homes to make way for a commercial use.
