Supporters of California's Prop. 90 Plan to Try Again
by Timothy Sandefur
Patrick Hoge of Scripps News Service has an article about the future of eminent domain reform in California. Excerpt:
Given that opponents raised $12.45 million compared with $3.77 million for proponents, Kevin Spillane, manager of the "yes" campaign, said the prospects for success next time around are bright.
"If I was a developer who profits from eminent domain, I would be deeply concerned and upset about the narrowness of victory," Spillane said.
Twelve million against and three million for? But I thought Prop. 90 was a trick by evil rich developers!
Note an inaccuracy at the end of the article, however: Pacific Legal Foundation did not support Proposition 90. PLF does not take positions on political campaigns.
