HB 2306: Compensation for Seized Property

Virginia House Bill 2306 stipulates how the state is required to compensate property owners for property seized "pursuant to eminent domain."

Personally, I'd prefer a bill to the effect that the state may not seize property, period...but if you agree with the fourteen State Senators who just voted this morning that at least the state owes reasonable compensation for any property it wants to seize, here are the ones to thank: "Norment, Saslaw, Marsh, Howell, Lucas, Edwards, Puller, McDougle, McEachin, Stuart, Vogel, Stanley, Reeves, Garrett."
