Eminent domain reform, at last!

Texas Eminent DomainBy Kenneth Dierschke
President
Texas Farm Bureau

Congratulations, Texas. Eminent domain has been reformed!

Private property laws in the Lone Star State have entered the 21st Century. The take-it-or-leave-it attitude displayed by some condemning authorities will be replaced by good faith and cooperation.

This is Texas Farm Bureau’s time—if we have the will to make it happen.

By Mike Barnett 

My blogging partner Gene Hall and I have gained a reputation as “the angry dudes from Texas.”

We’re not afraid to address controversial issues in Texas Agriculture Talks. We tangle sometimes with those with whom we disagree. But angry? I prefer to call it edgy. Then again I’m looking at it from this side of the fence.

Today, however—for this blog at least—I’m going to mellow out. Not one angry word will slip from this keyboard.
