The law of unintended consequence? The House voted by voice vote to overturn the Kelso ruling,
The House sought Tuesday to undercut a 2005 Supreme Court ruling that gives state and local governments eminent domain authority to seize private property for economic development projects. Sponsors of the bill, which passed by a voice vote, said it was needed because the 5-to-4 ruling in a Connecticut case skewed constitutional intentions that eminent domain apply only to land for public use projects.
