According to the Bowling Green Daily News, the newly elected leaders of the City of Bowling Green, KY are concerned about the (ab)use of eminent domain in the city's downtown revitalization efforts. The paper's editorial board validates this concern and offers some perspective and advice: There's an idea worth considering. And property rights advocates nationwide are hoping that the Supreme Court will provide much more clarity on what a "clear, public purpose" really is in their ultimate decision in the Kelo vs. New London case. Check out Reason's Eminent Domain Resource Center for the latest on this important issue. (Hat Tip: Eminent Domain Watch)
