HB 1483 by Rep. Pitts, supported by the Farm Bureau, which will give more protection to rural residents against eminent domain for such projects as the Trans-Texas Corridor, has been set for a public hearing in the Land & Resource Management Committee, for Wednesday, March 25, at 8 a.m., at the Capitol in Room E2.012.
Pitts has secured many co-authors, so there is legislative support for this bill. It would be good for as many of us as possible to show up and testify in favor or to submit written comments.
Our new District 52 Representative Diana Maldonado has signed on as a co-author of this bill. Thank you Representive Maldonado! I doubt if our former Representative Krusee would have supported anything that was opposed by Gov. 39%, even if it was in the best interests of his constituents.
