Scoppe: SC bill would protect your right to not sell your property

A business that is allowed to use ‘eminent domain’ can force you to sell your property, which means you lose the power to negotiate

Kinder Morgan says it has this power and may use it to force SC homeowners and and businesses to sell it land or rights-of-way to construct a pipeline to take petroleum out of South Carolina

Senate bill aims to clarify that private companies can’t do this unless they’re regulated utilities
