Summary In Texas, there are 4,900 parcels of property within 500 feet of the border ... .The entire process of eminent domain" -- the legal term for government taking private property -- along the border makes a sham of the Constitution's requirement that 'private property (not) be taken for public use, without just compensation.'" - InsideSources, "Building the Wall Using Eminent Domain Hurts Americans" Shades of Public Finance Vol. 2 takes readers through some of the most pressing concerns of the day. Welcome to learning about these important issues in public finance: clean water, solid waste disposal, highways, utilities, open space, gambling and native Americans, public authorities, reciprocal tax immunity, and eminent domain. You may not realize it, but these topics reside in the shadows of your everyday life and budget. "Whether you write the tax laws or pay the taxes that result, function in the private sector or the public, or care about potholes or wastewater, you will find Sigal's stories behind the stories fascinating. When they say it is not about the money, they are wrong. It always is. And the ultimate question is 'whose money?' Sigal explains it clearly." - Majorie Smith, Chair, New Hampshire House Judiciary Committee; former Chair, NH House Finance Committee and Joint Fiscal Committee".
