Ohio eminent domain ballot issue

Voters in Ohio may get the chance next Fall to limit the State’s “home rule” authority in so far as eminent domain rights are concerned. (Article)

Following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Kelo in June 2004, and Norwood v. Horney/ Gamble earlier this year, the Ohio legislature responded with a moratorium on eminent domain takings until the end of this year, and the formation of a state-wide task force on the issue, which filed its final report last August.
