Prop 90 (revisited) and Prop 89
I've said here before that I supported Prop 90, that eminent domain reform initiative on the November ballot. Eric Kirk took the opposite position on his blog a while back, with some points well made.
Now, Senate Republican Leader, Dick Ackerman, has come out opposed to Prop 90, citing reasons along the line of Eric's.
I am certainly re- thinking my position on this initiative. Prop 90 was one of four or five eminent domain initiatives that were circulating and was the only one that made it to the ballot. Too bad one or two of the others didn't make it so we could have taken a closer look at them.
