Individual and Property Rights
Eminent Domain -- Monica is a strong supporter of property rights and she passed legislation clarifying that an easement is the preferred interest taken in eminent domain. Monica believes eminent domain is a last-resort option and that all
property owners should be justly compensated when eminent domain is used.
Patriot Act -- Monica understands that protecting our civil liberties is an important part of the job of anyone who is elected to represent us. That's why she--along with 85 percent of Montana legislators, Democrats and Republicans--voted for a resolution in 2005 urging Congress, the President and Montana's Representatives to fix this law so it would protect the civil liberties of all Americans.
