CT Reps Vote – July 5, 2005

Well, they’re at it again. Keep em comin. Happily, the Congress stood tall, except Washington state, against the Supreme Court in the case of Kelo et al. v. City of New London.

Honestly I have no idea if this means much will change regarding private property but at least someone recognized the issue of private ownership as a large issue in the US.
