01 Jul: Gill And Allen Seek To Protect Homes Against Eminent Domain

TRENTON – In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s narrow ruling last week which expands the scope of eminent domain, a bipartisan bill sponsorsed by Senators Nia H. Gill and Diane Allen was introduced to protect New Jersey residents from being ousted from their homes under the controversial condemnation proceedings.

“Taking private property from one private owner and transferring it to another seriously jeopardizes the security of all private property ownership,” said Senator Gill, D-Essex and Passaic. “Being able to own property is part of the American Dream that is undeniably desired by everyone. It is a dream which must be protected.”
