A Lubbock City Councilman says now is the time to act to keep eminent domain from being abused in the future.
"Our responsibility is to do everything we can now through the state legislature to hope we have guidelines that would limit these types of situations to a case by case scenario." Councilman Gary Boren calls Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court decision wrong and deplorable. The ruling gives local governments the power to seize your home with compensation for use in private development.
Boren says Lubbock citizens can make a difference if everyone works together.
