Eminent Domain Reform: Senate Votes to Hold All Bills “For Further Study”

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted last night to hold all 4 eminent domain reform bills (the Governor’s bill, the Lieutenant Governor’s bill, the Attorney General’s bill, and the Cote/Badeau/Breene bill) before the committee “for further study”, meaning that the Senate is not required to take any further action on them this session.
Whether this means that the legislature plans no action on eminent domain reform this year, or plans to pass one of the 4 bills still before the Rhode Island House (the Davey bill, the McHugh bill, the Lima bill, or the House version of the Attorney General’s bill) remains to be seen.
Details on all of the bills are available here, here, here, and here.
