Blunt Sets Up Eminent Domain Task Force

Missouri Governor Matt Blunt (R) has set up an eminent domain task force to review laws and recommend legislation that would establish criteria for state and local governments to use when taking private property.

Blunt had expressed concern after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month gave local governments broader powers to seize private property for tax-revenue-producing developments such as shopping malls.
