S.F. No. 1620 - Eminent Domain Relocation Assistance
Author: Senator Benjamin A. Kruse
Prepared By:
Date: February 8, 2012


This bill amends the law governing relocation assistance in eminent domain cases. 

Current law provides that if a person entitled to relocation assistance does not accept the acquiring authority’s offer, the acquiring authority must initiate a contested case proceeding.  This bill would require a contested case proceeding in cases where a person does not accept the acquiring authority’s denial of relocation assistance, in addition to the determination of the amount of assistance.

The bill would be effective the day following final enactment and apply to relocation assistance claims and claims of eligibility for relocation assistance pending on or made after that date.
