Eminent Domain Limits Pass in Michigan

Houston Chronicle:
"Voters by a 4-1 margin approved a measure to prohibit governments from claiming eminent domain to seize private property for certain private economic development projects. With its passage, Proposal 4 enacts a 2004 Michigan Supreme Court decision into the state constitution.

Also seeing wide approval was Proposal 1, which provides 13 conservation and recreation funds with constitutional protection against other uses. It also passed by a 4-1 margin."
