The American magazine has this article on progress in eminent domain reform. Excerpt:

The laws passed thus far represent "more than I would have expected" says Clint Bolick, a fellow at the Hoover Institution. Even still, he adds, "The progress has been very incremental, and I fear that the momentum will dissipate." After all, "The Empire always strikes back."
