My bill, HF. 1182 to remove exemptions for eminent domain proceedings for High Voltage Powerlines and Pipelines, passed on the MN House floor with a vote of 123 to 5 yesterday. This measure will protect property owners, making sure they are dealt with fairly in the taking of land through eminent domain. A summary of the bill can be found on the Legislature’s website. Today it was received by the Senate and referred to the Rules and Administration Committee.
