More on Eminent Domain’s Threat to Small Business

Default-Image-10

Recently on this site we have been discussing the issue of eminent domain and the threat it poses to small business. I’d like to point out one additional source of excellent information.

The Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council has come out squarely against overzealous eminent domain actions. The SBE has put together a 9-page report that chronicles a long list of local governments taking eminent domain actions against small businesses. Read “Under Attack: Small Business Faces the Abuse of Eminent Domain (PDF).”

  1. Given the influence of lobbyist, this is a real threat to small business. Something needs to be done to combat the taking of property by local governments. Thanks for the post.

AND AS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER THEY WANT TO PAY NOTHING FOR THE BUSINESS , IN THE PROCESS TAKING AWAY MY LIVELYHOOD .
