EMINENT DOMAIN: Coming to a town near you?

The Texas Supreme Court
will hear a controversial case
to determine if a pipeline
carrying natural gas from
Louisiana to south of Houston,
should be deemed a "common
carrier", which would give it the
power of eminent domain.
That means if they want to come
through your property and you
don't want to sign the the offer
they make on your property, they
can begin condemnation pro-
cedures to just take your property
for what they think it's worth.
Read what Public Citizen says
about that:
