The article reports on the scheduled voting of Nevada citizens in November 2006 which will determine whether an eminent domain restriction will be added to the state's constitution. As the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court on the case of Kelo vs. New London strengthened the power of the local government to invoke the eminent domain law in taking properties, a ballot initiative sponsored by Don Chairez, Nevada former district judge and candidate for attorney general, will take place.
