The right to property: Legislature Likely to Pass Expropriation Bill

Although the Legislature is expected to approve a constitutional amendment to restrict the government's right to take private property for private development, the extent of the proposal is still being hammered out. The bill has now doubled in size. Senate amendments include new rights to trials by jury, new compensation rules for property owners, exemptions for ports and chemical pipelines, and other provisions.
