Eminent domain has been subject to widespread abuse in California. There is a type of eminent domain that threatens every person in California and throughout the nation. In California, as in many other states, our homes, businesses and places of worship can be seized by a Redevelopment Agency and turned over to another private entity for their financial gain. Since 1954 the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed expansion of the meaning of public use to include economic development.
The people of California need protection from eminent domain seizure of private property for private profit.
Owning property is a basic right in this country. As your State Assembly Woman I will fight against unlawful seizure of your property.
