Eminent domain headed to House floor again: WIS-TV10 (Columbia SC), 5/16/06

[South Carolina] House members who oppose requiring local governments to compensate property owners for zoning decisions were successful today in keeping the amendment out of eminent domain legislation.

The House Judiciary Committee voted 11-10 to remove the regulatory takings amendment from the proposed constitutional amendment, just minutes after members voted by the same margin to add it.

The measure cleared the Senate in February.

It now heads to the House floor, where the issue will be debated for the second time this session.
