Bill Helps Citizens Better Understand Eminent Domain

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – Legislation has been introduced that would allow property owners to better understand their rights during eminent domain negotiations. House Bill 2609 would require the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General to create a “Landowner Bill of Rights” to clearly outline the rights and responsibilities property owners have during any land acquisition negotiations where eminent domain is being used. The legislation, introduced by Delaware County Rep. Chris Quinn, came after hearing from many residents that felt pressured to give up easements and other land rights during the early stages of the Mariner East 2 pipeline project. He said under current law, information is not readily accessible to the public. He added that the information provided by the attorney general would assist all residents and ensure that everyone is negotiating in good faith.
