PERSON ON STREET: Define Eminent Domain? PERSON ON STREET: Eminent Domain? PERSON ON STREET: I’m going to let him speak first.…

This year may be the session that changes with the governor, House and Senate all agreeing it’s time for reform.

(Register rings) ROMERO: The fundamentals of eminent domain is it’s supposed to be only for public use. And I realized that the city is saying this is to expand Mercedes Benz.
