Protecting the Fundamental Rights of Missourians
When the Supreme Court decided Kelo v. City of New London in 2005 and determined that private property could be taken away through eminent domain for private use, many Americans were rightly outraged. Unfortunately, our most basic constitutional right to own a home or small business is under threat.
Why? According to the Supreme Court, politicians can team up with developers to take land that belongs to businesses, families or churches simply because a commercial development would be useful in that place.
Fortunately, there are those who are willing to stand up and fight for property rights. Like Adam Smith, we believe the right to own private property is fundamental to our ability to have a vibrant economy, and that property rights are fundamentally important to freedom.
Please sign up for the ASF mailing list and stay informed of what we are doing to fight eminent domain abuse and protect the property rights of ordinary Missourians.
Legislature Attempts to Weaken Initiative Rights
This session, the legislature is considering a variety of bills that will extremely restrict citizens' opportunity to take the lead on legislative issues through the initiative process.
Missourians' initiative rights are extremely important and must be protected. Initiatives are an important tool for citizens to use when the legislature refuses to take action on important issues, and we must ensure this tool remains a viable option for Missourians to use.
