Do you think that the Kansas government should have the power of eminent domain (taking property for economic development)?

Asked at Westridge Shopping Center on October 04, 2004

“If they pay you enough money for your property, then they should be able to do whatever they want.”

“Absolutely not. I think that people should have power over their own property. I think that the government should compromise.”

“Absolutely not. I don't think that it's fair. Maybe for roadways, but not just to benefit business.”

“No. I do feel that it is OK for road improvement, but to take it for economic development should not be the right of the state. The people should be allowed to vote on that.”
