"U.S. Conference of Mayors" Fighting Remedial Legislation Protecting Property Owners From Eminent Domain Consequences Following Supreme Court Ruling"
(Sept. 27, 2005) -- After filing a "Friend of the Court" brief that urged the U.S. Supreme Court to rule against property owners in a precedent-setting eminent domain case, the "U.S. Conference of Mayors," now headed by LB Mayor Beverly O'Neill, is working to defeat legislation being advanced to protect property owners in the wake of the Court ruling.
The Mayors' group, a private organization funded in part by memberships paid by taxpayers from cities including Long Beach, has issued a memo via its Executive Director urging Mayors of member cities "not to support legislation restricting state and local use of eminent domain in promoting economic development" and to lobby Congressmembers accordingly.Posted by Coalition Webbies at October 1, 2005 12:21 PM
