Some 97 percent of the property in Texas is under private ownership

Titled Reforming Eminent Domain: Fair is Fair, the website not only chronicles Farm Bureau's fight for reform of eminent domain rights in Texas, but provides an easy avenue for urban and rural property owners to express their will on Texas property law to their state representatives and senators.
"Texas Farm Bureau has been a leader in the fight for changes in eminent domain law that empower rather than imperil residents of the Lone Star State," said Texas Farm Bureau Public Relations Director Gene Hall. "We will continue the fight for fair and just eminent domain reform as long as Texas property law is stacked against those who own private property, including homes, farms and businesses."
Several unique features may be found on the newly launched website about Texas eminent domain. In addition to an extensive collection of video and print news stories on eminent domain issues, users can listen to what their elected officials have to say about reforming Texas eminent domain law, which affects the rights of private property owners across Texas.
Property owners can also contact those lawmakers directly by means of Texas Farm Bureau's easy-to-use Legislative Action Center, which allows users the opportunity to do something about protecting their private property. A feature soon to be added will allow users to share their stories regarding eminent domain abuse on TFB's interactive "Tell Us Your Tale" message board.
The website, Hall said, should find a huge audience.
"Some 97 percent of the property in Texas is under private ownership," Hall said. "Each and every one of those property owners has a huge stake in eminent domain reform."
