DeMoines Register editorial writer states case for eminent domain

Rox Laird, editorial writer for The DeMoines Register, penned an editorial supporting caution in the eminent domain reform movement in Iowa.

Laird outlines several of the steps that must be taken in Iowa for approval of eminent domain condemnation for any redevelopment project, stating, "there is no evidence of abuse of eminent domain in Iowa."

After the editorial ran, Laird was also a guest on National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation (see, "Misconceptions over eminent domain").
