Just Say "No" to Corporate Welfare

The House Summer Study Committee of the General Assembly is studying the issue of Eminent Domain in the wake of Kelo v. New London. A public hearing will be held Wednesday, August 10 at 1 pm, in the auditorium of the Government Center South (southwest of the State House) in Indianapolis.

I expect many Libertarian Party leaders from across Indiana to be present to express our view to the Committee that taking one's property and giving it to another person to "redevelop" is very bad public policy. This has become necessary to reinforce, especially since the United State's Supreme Court says it is lawful under the U.S. Constitution for Indiana and other states to do this.

Michael Kole, who is seeking the Libertarian nomination for Secretary of State, is planning on attending this hearing.

I plan on attending this event in Indianapolis. I think this is an extremely important topic and I want to make sure our elected officials understand what is at stake.
