The purpose of eminent domain is to acquire land for infrastructure and other critical needs for the betterment of the state. It was intended to be used as a last resort and not an easy avenue for private, for-profit companies to make money at the expense of landowners while providing little to no benefit to the state. MCA will support legislation to ensure eminent domain is not a tool used to deprive citizens of their private property rights. Click here for more information.
