As a follow-up to Adrian's Kelo-related post on Friday, Texas Senator Jon Cornyn has introduced legislation to ban eminent domain for economic development purposes, at least in projects that involve federal funding. Here's the link: S. 1313, "Protection of Homes, Small Businesses, and Private Property Act of 2005"
