Quick Eminent Domain & Tax-Lien Reform Update

Carroll Andrew Morse

According to Rhode Island Senate Press Secretary Greg Pare, Tuesday's Judiciary Committee vote tallies in favor of holding the three tax-lien reform and four eminent domain reform bills for further study were all unanimous.

Since the sponsors of three of the bills are on the Juidicary Committee; Senators Harold Metts (D-Providence), Rhoda Perry (D-Providence), and Leo Blais (R-Coventry/Foster/Scituate), the unanimous votes may be an indication that "further study" is, in this case, part of the process of picking a single bill or combining features from the various options that have been introduced.
