Senator Craig Estes Aims At Passing A New Bill

State Senator Craig Estes spoke about a new bill he's aiming to pass.

Senate Bill 180 was drawn up to reform the process of Eminent Domain.

"I think that it's something people are wanting and all the interested parties are on board. Everybody thinks it's a pretty good deal," said Estes.

Eminent Domain refers to the government practice of taking private land for public use.

Senator Estes says it is a *statewide problem*.

Governor Rick Perry has placed an emergency status on the bill for immediate presentation.
