TSCRA and other landowner organizations will host meetings around Texas in the coming weeks. Attendees will participate in discussions of eminent domain issues, along with ideas to safeguard Texans’ private property rights. Property owners who attend will learn about upcoming legislative efforts to achieve fairness in the laws that govern the use of eminent domain in Texas and a legal expert will also be present for an overview of current laws and discuss possible improvements.
No RSVP is required to attend and anyone interested in this topic or who has past or present eminent domain issues is encouraged to attend.
