State At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Adam Lax­alt (R) told CPAC “Fri­day that pro­tect­ing private prop­erty rights from gov­ern­ment is an Amer­ic­an prin­ciple that is un­der siege. Lax­alt used what he called ques­tion­able ‘gov­ern­ment tak­ings’ cases in Con­necti­c­ut and Wis­con­sin to il­lus­trate how em­in­ent do­main and state reg­u­la­tions can al­low gov­ern­ments to seize homes and prop­erty from private cit­izens. ‘That shows the hubris of gov­ern­ment,’ Lax­alt said.” (Las Ve­gas Re­view-Journ­al)
