Way to go Bama.

You can marry your cousin and flip off Pfizer, Walmart or whatever anti-capitalist, land-seizing development contractor comes a knockin. Good for them.
Quote of the day:

We don't like anybody messing with our dogs, our guns, our hunting rights or trying to take property from us," says state Sen. Jack Biddle, a sponsor of the law.

According to the article:

Legislation to ban or restrict the use of eminent domain for private development has been introduced in 16 states: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Texas. Legislators have announced plans to introduce eminent-domain bills in seven more states: Alaska, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Dakota, South Carolina and Wisconsin, and lawmakers in Colorado, Georgia and Virginia plan to act on previously introduced bills.

As much as I despise the underlying result of Kelo, this is the right remedy - legislative action at the individual state level. We don't need the Feds!
