Iowa House Passes Bill To Allow Court Review Of Pipeline Eminent Domain Requests

(Des Moines) — In a move to address concerns over eminent domain use for carbon dioxide capture pipeline, a bill allowing individuals or companies to seek court review of forced easements, has been approved. The measure, passed with bipartisan support, aims to expand landowners’ rights and clarify legal questions surrounding eminent domain authority for such projects. This legislation comes after opposition to proposed pipelines. While proponents argue the pipelines are crucial for Iowa’s agricultural success, critics contend that the bill would level the playing field for landowners affected by these projects.
