EMINENT DOMAIN



Senate Democrats are taking steps to curb the inequities of eminent domain. The controversial "condemnation" process and its examination was given the attention it deserved at a public hearing spearheaded by Senator Bill Perkins (D-Harlem). Known as an outspoken advocate against the spanking lodged against Harlem by Columbia University encroachment, Perkins expects to issue a report soon and will introduce comprehensive legislation during the next legislative session.

Government exists to protect rather than transfer or redistribute property. Society surrenders its freedom when it fails to respect the personal dignity of its members. This land is my land, this land is your land, dose not mean, my land is now your land for the taking. Our right to be secure in property has been reduced to such an extent, that our remaining liberties are of little value.
