Eminent Domain Bill Co-Sponsored By Johnston Lawmaker Passed By NC House - An eminent domain bill co-sponsored by Representative James Langdon of Johnston County has been approved by the NC House. By a vote of 104-15, the constitutional amendment now goes to the Senate for consideration. If approved by the General Assembly, it will go before voters in the form of a statewide referendum in the fall. The measure would only allow the government to condemn private property for public use. Some lawmakers who helped get the bill passed in the NC House felt more protection was needed so that property could not be condemned solely for economic development. Some of the opponents to the bill said they felt it would harm local government’s ability to attract new industries.Frankly said, the opponents of the bill are frickin' idiots.
