Good News From Delaware

         Rejecting intense lobbying by the City of Wilmington, the Delaware House of Representatives passed unanimously a bill reforming eminent domain by making it more difficult to take private property for economic redevelopment. We haven’t seen the bill, so i’s hard to tell if it represents real reform or whethet it’s like the California “reform” that is all show and no go.

         Delaware Governor Jack Markell said he will sign the bill, but as the bill’s sponsor put it, “It’s not over ’till it’s signed in Dover.”  Stay tuned.
