Indianapolis Eminent Domain

I received an email from Jim Hurst today. Jim Hurst is one of the owners of NK Hurst, the recently famous company that The Indianapolis Stadium Authority is trying to wrongly seize with eminent domain. Jim gave a powerful speech in support of HB 1010. He sent me an email thinking me for supporting his company.

I have to say it was very nice of him to thank me for speaking about eminent domain abuse... We can make a difference.

I have attached his email below. If you read this blog and want to make a difference in this world, be assured that you can!

Mike,

I have had the fortune to listen to all of your testimony before the Legislative Study Committee on Eminent Domain and again this past Monday in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

You are a compelling speaker and the fact you do so with no personal dog in this fight gives you even more credibility.

Congratulations on your successes.

Most Sincerely,

Jim Hurst
N.K. Hurst Company

I haven't gone back to check the statutory language so maybe this is an easy one to answer. But, a hypothetical occurred to me. Under the new proposal, a government unit would still be able to condemn property to build a road. Would the government unit then be able to allow a private entity to use part of the right of way? Say allow telephone or electric lines not owned by the government to be strung out in the right of way acquired by the government?
