Assemblyman Brodsky Introduces the Eminent Domain Ombudsman Act Again

Richard L. Brodsky (D-Westchester) introduced the Eminent Domain Ombudsman Act (A1268) into the Assembly again. The bill is modeled after the Utah State Property Rights Ombudsman. Craig Call, who holds that position, spoke in 2004 and 2005 at PRFA's Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights in Albany, describing how the office effectively acts as an advocate for the property owner and reduces litigation, therefore cutting costs at government agencies. The office would be located in the State Department of Transportation, an impartial agency with expertise and experience in eminent domain.
