Honor eminent domain policy

The Iowa Farm Bureau, the Iowa Soybean Association and the Iowa Corn Growers have a policy against giving power of eminent domain to private for-profit companies against private property owners.

So far, the Iowa Farm Bureau, the Iowa Soybean Association and the Iowa Corn Growers have been absent without leave in defending their policy on eminent domain.

Hopefully, these organizations realize it is not too late to honor and defend their policy on eminent domain.
