Eminent Domain/Condemnation

Powder River supports substantial reform of Wyoming's eminent domain statues, and applauds the promising state that Wyoming Legislature made toward such reform in the 2007 General Session. While acknowledging the need for eminent domain powers to be used in cases of clear public benefit and necessity, Powder River believes that granting private entities the right to condemn and take private property simply to lower project costs or simplify planning too often leads to flagrant abuse of the power.
