Texas Senate to Vote on Eminent Domain bill, SB 18 TOMORROW!

Texans need to say ANY eminent domain bill that fails to provide protection from Kelo is UNACCEPTABLE and a ruse!
In the meantime, ask your members of the House to put some language in the House version that will give landowners genuine protection from Kelo abuses as well as protection from stealing Texans’ land in the name of a road project and handing it to a private, for
