New Law Improves New Mexico Ranking on Property Protections

According to a new publication from the Institute for Justice, the non-profit law firm that litigated for property owners in Kelo v. New London, New Mexico’s eminent domain reforms passed during the last legislative session give the state an “A” when it comes to protecting property owners.
We knew the reforms were good and we’re happy that both Governor Richardson and the Legislature were able to find agreement on the issue without caving to special interests. For more information on eminent domain and the relative degree of protection in all 50 states, check out the report card here.
