Statement by Gov. Perry Regarding Senate Passage of Eminent Domain Legislation
"I am pleased the Senate today passed legislation that codifies much needed eminent domain protections for Texas property owners. By clearly defining these essential safeguards, we can shield landowners from abuses of eminent domain for generations to come.
"I applaud Senators Duncan, Estes and Hegar who advocated this bill every step of the way and I hope the House will follow suit in securing fair and effective eminent domain provisions for all Texans."
