Government must pay to make public use of private property.

The Constitution protects Americans’ right to just compensation whenever government takes private property. Whether it’s a legislature, an administrative agency, or a court, a government entity cannot transform property from private to public without paying for it.

To Our Donors

If government can use judicial fiat or state law to declare property private one day and public the next, property rights everywhere rest on shaky ground. Your commitment to PLF ensures that Randy and Kimberley Pavlock can fight property rights abuse by all branches of government. Thank you!
