The Gardners say the company offered them less than a third of the amount they got from another pipeline company that installed a gathering line on their land. Clearly, the time has come to amend the Natural Gas Act to curb the abuse of eminent domain power as the proliferation of pipelines explodes across the country. The situation will only get worse for landowners as fracking spreads to more populated areas.
My guess is Congress will eventually amend the Act, but how many landowners will be stripped of their property — and their trust in our government — before that happens? Read the full AP report here: Review the Natural Gas Act of Where the city of eau claire used ememit domain to cut a land owners property in half.
The sign still stands at As long as we continue to let our rights be violated they will continue to take them away. Proven true once again welcome to a police state. When Eminent domain is used for the good of a company and not the good of the people than it can not be called The right of eminent domain and must be called criminal intent. Bob Swarts should argue that that the company is trying to supply people with services that they can get in any other way such as utilities to land owners and the company is not trying to decrease the cost of the gas the pipeline will carry.
Gas companies are completely out of control. When the act was passed in , there was still common sense and people counted. Today people and the land be damned as long as the greed heads stuff their pockets.
This is an outrage, and once that land is altered that way it will never be the same again, ever. All so we can go speeding on our merry way to destruction. Thanks for the report.
