A bill protecting landowners from eminent domain has stalled in Iowa

A bill is effectively dead in Iowa that would limit eminent domain for carbon pipelines.

The state house passed it, but it will not get a hearing in the state senate before the legislative session ends. It was supported by a large group of ag residents and crafted to calm the fears of landowners worried they could be forced to sell access to their land.

The legislation would have required carbon pipeline companies to get 90 percent approval from landowners before the state would allow them to use eminent domain.

There is no word on if the bill will be brought back next session.
