A task force begins meeting in Missouri to discuss reforming eminent domain laws, in the wake of the Supreme Court's Kelo v. New London decision.
Gov. Matt Blunt appointed the task force on June 28, five days after the Supreme Court upheld the condemnation of 15 properties in New London, Conn. That city is trying to make way for a private development including a marina, new residences and shops aimed at economic revitalization.
