Last week, State Impact Texas devoted a three-part series to looking at the efforts to overhaul eminent domain in Texas and what may come next for landowners, pipeline companies, and the oil and gas industry. Covering everything from stories of individual landowners’ run-ins with pipeline companies, to an overview of eminent domain bills that failed in this year’s 83rd Texas legislative session, we think this series is definitely worth a listen for any landowner interested in the future of condemnation and eminent domain in Texas. Just click on one of the links below to read or listen to the three parts of this story:

PART 1: –  EMINENT DOMAIN: IN TEXAS, LANDOWNERS FACE CONTINUED UNCERTAINTY
