Perkins Holds Eminent Domain Hearing

On December 17, 2009 the New York Amsterdam News reported that Senator Bill Perkins applauded the appellate court decision that rejected the use of eminent domain in regard to the Columbia University’s west side expansion plans.  Additionally, Senator Perkins sent a letter to Governor David Paterson requesting that he place a moratorium on eminent domain, pending legislative action, and not to appeal the court’s decision.
