Virginia Family Harassed By VDOT 11 Times Over Eminent Domain! But Virginia Senate Still Rejects Bill!Mar 03, 2010
To add insult to injury, the Senate Finance Committee's rejection of HB 652 comes on top of this: A Virginia man and his family's farm have been condemned through eminent domain 11 times by VDOT over the years! But the Virginia Senate today, and over the last two weeks with its legislative game playing in the Courts of Justice Committee, has shown it cares not about your constitutional rights to property. By the way, the victim's attorney, Joe Waldo, was one of our expert witnesses during the entire legislative process. Be warned: This man's story is sure to make your blood boil. Remember, VDOT attached the "Fiscal Impact Statement" to HB 652 that effectively killed the bill.
VDOT's thirst for private property NEVER ends. Ask this poor man.
