Greenbelt Condemnation Bill Passes Senate

Posted By Justin Ruen, Monday, February 23, 2015

Today the Idaho Senate passed Senate Bill 1044 sponsored by Sen. Jim Guthrie, R-McCammon, that would prohibit local governments from using eminent domain for greenbelts, bicycle and pedestrian facilities.  The vote was 20-13-1 (see below).  If time permits, I will have a more extensive report soon.  We extend our appreciation to all the city officials who contacted their legislators on this important issue.  The bill now heads to the House.

PASSED - 20-13-1

AYES -- Bair, Bayer, Brackett, Davis, Den Hartog, Guthrie, Hagedorn, Keough, Lee, Lodge, Martin, Mortimer, Nonini, Nuxoll, Patrick, Siddoway, Souza, Thayn, Tippets, Vick
