California Proposition 90 (2006)


California Proposition 90 (2006)

California Proposition 90 was a 2006 ballot initiative in the state of California, United States. Passing of the initiative would have made two changes to California law:
* Eminent domain could not be used by government except to provide facilities for public use, to abate specific public nuisances, and to act in a declared state of emergency. (This was a reaction to the Supreme Court's decision in "Kelo v. City of New London".)
* Government would be required to reimburse property owners whose property value is decreased as a result of "any" government regulation or action.

The measure was defeated by a vote of 47.6% in favor and 52.4% opposed. [California Secretary of State [http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/sov/2006_general/contents.htm 2006 Election returns] ] In the June 2008 election the more narrowly defined Proposition 99 was passed.

The initiative was similar to the controversial Oregon Ballot Measure 37 (2004).
