Kelo activity at the federal level

Excerpt from Testimony of
The Honorable John Cornyn
United States Senator (R-TX)
before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary

The protection of homes, small businesses, and other private property rights against government seizure and other unreasonable government interference is a fundamental principle and core commitment of our nation’s Founders. In the aftermath of Kelo, we must take all necessary action to restore and strengthen the protections of the Fifth Amendment. I ask my colleagues to lend their support to this effort, by supporting the Protection of Homes, Small Businesses, and Private Property Act of 2005.

Senator Cornyn currently chairs the Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship, and in the last Congress he was chairman of the Constitution, Civil Rights and Property Rights subcommittee. He is the only former judge on the Judiciary Committee, and served previously as Texas Supreme Court Justice, Texas Attorney General, and Bexar County District Judge.
