January 22 Sunday’s Oklahoman page 4 What’s the Legislature planning? SBl066 by Sen. Earl Garrison, D. Muskogee, would prohibit state and local governments from taking people’s private property for private use. The measure indicates a public entity would not have the power to acquire property by eminent domain for a purpose that is soley economic development.

I cannot get a link to the website from the Oklahoman because I am not a subscriber. Sorry.

    SB1066 deals largely with changes to O.S. Title 11 which is Municipalities (Cities and Towns) it may or may not apply to OSU and schools. A search of the Oklahoma Legislative Service Bureau’s web site for text of measures yields about 39 measures. To view the text of these go to http://www.lsb.state.ok.us then go down to the center column, LEGISLATIVE INFORMATION SYSTEM, then down to Search Text of Measures and click on it, then type in eminent domain and do a search. You can then click on the individual measures and open, read or print. There is a lot more in the Senate than in the House.
