Lisa Baker’s eminent domain bill, the one that started it all last session, just got reported out by the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee.
Great news! Readers who have following Lisa Baker’s bill since she first introduced it last session, know that Rep. Jon Fritz has been pushing a version of it in the Pennsylvania House and it is awaiting a vote as H.B. 827, with the DRBC furiously opposing. Meanwhile Senator Lisa Baker has re-introduced her original version as S.B. 305. The legislation is labeled as:
“An Act designating certain activity by the Delaware River Basin Commission as the exercise of the power of eminent domain that entitles the owners of the property in question to appropriate and just compensation.”
The news out of Harrisburg this afternoon is that Lisa Baker’s eminent domain bill has also now been reported out of the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee on a bi-partisan 7 to 3 vote. Hallelujah!
