The Wyoming House continues to support a bill that would strengthen the state’s eminent domain laws.
It would require that all legal requirements for condemning land must be met before a case can be taken to a court. If a company fails, or if a landowner is not given fair market value for his property, the landowner would be able to sue.
Groups supporting the bill say it will limit abuses in eminent domain discussions.
Casper Representative Tim Stubson failed in his attempts to amend the bill, saying that it’s leaning too heavily in favor of landowners.
