Citizens in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, and Washington will be voting on takings initiatives which supporters claim will protect our homes and businesses from government seizure under the power of eminent domain. In fact, these propositions are nothing more than a ploy by wealthy developers to force taxpayers to pay for the right to pass and enforce land use planning laws designed to protect quality of life and the environment.
- Arizona -- Vote no on Proposition 207: Costly to Taxpayers, Harmful to Neighborhoods
- California -- Vote no on Proposition 90: The "Taxpayer Trap"
- Montana -- Vote no on I-154; Raw Deal for Taxpayers Special Deals for Outside Developers
- Washington -- Vote no on 933; too many questions, too many loopholes, too costly for taxpayers
