Petitions Push Land Rights

JACKSON, Miss. — The Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation has begun gathering petition signatures to get an eminent domain initiative on the November 2011 ballot.
According to the Clarion-Ledger, the federation’s proposal would limit eminent domain to direct public use, meaning the property could not be taken and given to a business. The move comes after several failed attempts to get an eminent domain bill through the Legislature.
