Summary as introduced:
Local condemnation authority; definition of public uses.  Amends the definition of "public uses" for which localities may exercise the power of eminent domain to exclude any condemnation of property by a locality that (i) is made with the intent of making the property available for ownership by a private entity, unless any benefits that will accrue to the private entity as a result of its ownership are merely incidental when compared to the benefits that will accrue to the public; or (ii) is otherwise predominantly for a private purpose. The bill further defines public use to exclude the receipt of taxes or other revenue by any government entity resulting from the condemnation of property.
