Property seizure backlash - Yahoo! News: "In Congress, Sen. John Cornyn (news, bio, voting record) (R) of Texas has introduced the protection of homes, small businesses, and private property act. A similar, bipartisan bill has been introduced in the House. 'The power of eminent domain should not be used simply to further private economic development,' said Mr. Cornyn in a statement. The bill would bar federal funds for state and local governments that seize land for private development."
