In a huge win for property rights, Merchant Lines are now forbidden to condemn property through Eminent Domain in Iowa.
Iowa Senate File 516 was signed into law by Governor Branstad on May 12, 2017. We’re inspired by this legislative win and hope that Missouri will get its act together and enact stronger property rights protections like this one going into effect next door. We applaud everyone who had a hand in pulling off this victory!
