URGENT: Legislators to Vote on Land Grab Legislation!

Any day minute now, your State Legislator will be voting on legislation that will allow local agencies to use your tax dollars for EMINENT DOMAIN -- the practice of forcibly seizing homes, small businesses and places of worship from unwilling sellers and then, have politicians give it to politically connected developers.

In fact, Assembly Bill 2, authored Asm. Luis Alejo (D), will make it even easier to seize private property -- especially in rural and highly urbanized communities!

TAKE ACTION NOW: To call or email your State Senator and Assembly Member, click here findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/ This bill has the support of both Republicans and Democrats - but not property owners!

Institute for Justice Says AB 2 Expands Govt's Eminent Domain Powers!

In recent bill analysis, the Institute for Justice warns that Assembly Bill 2, sponsored by Asm. Luis Alejo, expands government's power of eminent domain and removes what limited private property rights protections currently exist.

‚ÄúAB 2 invites redevelopment-era abuse that will encourage local agencies to once again use taxpayer dollars and eminent domain to forcibly seize private property from California‚Äôs hard-working home and small business owners. The legislation establishes new, broader definitions of blight that would allow and actually incentivize these agencies to target California‚Äôs most vulnerable populations: those with lower incomes and fewer resources to fight to keep what they have worked so hard to own.‚ÄĚ -- Institute of Justice, a public-interest law group that represented Susette Kelo before the U.S. Supreme Court, Kelo v. City of New London.

AB 2: State Legislators to Vote on Eminent Domain Legislation

On Tuesday and Wednesday (Sept. 1st & 2nd) your State Legislators will be voting on Assembly Bill 2 (Alejo), legislation that will allow local agencies to use your tax dollars for EMINENT DOMAIN -- the practice of forcibly seizing homes, small businesses and places of worship from unwilling sellers and then, have politicians give it to politically connected developers.

In fact, AB 2 will make it even easier to seize private property -- more so than ever before!

David BarronLadies and gentlemen, as a government civil servant by day, many of you know I oppose legislative bills, laws that are detrimental to our best interest. I strongly oppose AB2. And,tied in with several other bills it's an unbelievable plan to weaken our protections and take away our liberty, slowly limit our vote and attack our property rights and increase our taxes in many categories, all to partly finance wealthy developers projects and enrich politically connected organizations. The sad part, some of us will be forced to move out of our homes, apartments and businesses. I strongly say No on AB2. Tell your legislator representative to vote No on AB2.

Steven CostaMore corruption fueled legislation in Sacramento. Eminent Domain was originally conceived for PUBLIC projects like freeways, public buildings, etc. Now it is being abused to steal from private property owners to reward other private property owners. Why? So corrupt politicians can line their pockets with developer supplied graft. Dirty crooks!

Richard BramerGeeze the Conservates here in California have the same short memories as their Confederate-flag waving brothers. (Nevermind some of them are Confederate-flag waving Californians, as if that alone doesn't mark them as self-deceived) Lessee: Schwarzenegger. Wilson. Deukmejian. Reagan. Did I forget any? Shall we go on?

James HaggertyFor anyone from San Francisco bay area might remember the best pizza was from TOTOs, it had been in Daly City for three generations and was a SF land mark. But SF city hall came with eminent domain and destroyed allegedly so the Bart train could have more parking. But what actually happened was the pizza was replaced with a movie theater. I wonder how much money was paid to what politician.
