Ohio Eminent Domain Task Force Recommendations

From the Greater Ohio website:
Ohio’s legislative task force on eminent domain has come out with a detailed list of recommendations that will likely be addressed by the Legislature after this fall’s election. Some say the changes are sweeping — in part as a result of the Ohio Supreme Court decision in Norwood v. Horney, which declared use of eminent domain for the sole purpose of economic development in violation of Ohio’s constitution....The Eminent Domain Task Force was formed to study eminent domain and its use and application in the state, in light of the Kelo v. City of New London Supreme Court decision.
