1. EMINENT DOMAIN INITIATIVE VO/SOT

LIVE: PROPONENTS OF AN INITIATIVE THAT WILL PROHIBIT GOVERNMENT TAKING OF PRIVATE PROPERTY FOR ANOTHER PRIVATE PERSON OR BUSINESS ARE SUBMITTING MORE THAN ONE MILLION SIGNATURES TO QUALIFY THE MEASURE FOR THE JUNE 2008 BALLOT. THE PROPOSED INITIATIVE ALSO ELIMINATES RENT CONTROL LAWS IN CALIFORNIA.

SUPER: TODAY/SACRAMENTO COUNTY ELECTIONS OFFICE/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:25) PROPONENTS TURNED IN ABOUT 50 THOUSAND SIGNATURES TO THE SACRAMENTO COUNTY REGISTRAR OF VOTERS TODAY FOR WHAT THEY CALL THE "CALIFORNIA PROPERTY OWNERS AND FARMLAND PROTECTION ACT." IT IS SUPPORTED BY THE HOWARD JARVIS TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION, CALIFORNIA FARM BUREAU, SMALL BUSINESS GROUPS AND THE BLACK AND HISPANIC CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE. SUPPORTERS CLAIM THE MEASURE WILL PROTECT HOME AND BUSINESS OWNERS FROM SEIZURES THAT WERE UPHELD BY A 2005 UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT DECISION. PROPONENTS OF A COMPETING INITIATIVE THAT ONLY CALLS FOR PROTECTION OF OWNER OCCUPIED HOMES FROM EMINENT DOMAIN SEIZURES SAYS THE PROPERTY OWNERS AND FARMLAND ACT IS USING PUBLIC FEAR OF THE SUPREME COURT DECISION AS AN EXCUSE TO DO AWAY WITH RENT CONTROL LAWS.

SUPER: JON COUPAL/PRESIDENT/HOWARD JARVIS TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION

SOT: (:18)

SAYS: "WHEN AN APARTMENT IS VACATED THE LANDLORD HAS AN INCENTIVE ... THEY CAN DO IT."

SUPER: BRIAN AUGUSTA/SACRAMENTO HOUSING ALLIANCE

SOT: (:48)

SAYS: "WE THINK THE MUCH MORE NARROWLY CRAFTED INITIATIVE ... WHAT'S SO EXTREME ABOUT WANTING TO PROTECT A SMALL BUSINESS OR A FARM? ... YOUR SINGLE FAMILY HOME."

VO TAG: PROPONENTS OF THE INITIATIVE BY THE LEAGUE OF CITIES, ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES AND REDEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATIONS PLAN TO SUBMIT THEIR SIGNATURES NEXT WEEK.

40 OTHER STATES HAVE PASSED LAWS TO PROHIBIT TAKING OF PRIVATE PROPERTY FOR OTHER PRIVATE ENTITIES SINCE THE 2005 DECISION BY THE HIGH COURT. TWO MEASURE TO DO SO IN THE LEGISLATURE WERE DEFEATED IN THE 2006 SESSION.

EXTRA BITES:

SUPER: JON COUPAL/PRESIDENT HOWARD JARVIS TAXPAYER ASSOCIATION

SOT: (:31)

SAYS: "IN THE KELO DECISION THE SUPREME COURT ... FOR THE PURPOSE OF TURNING IT OVER TO SOMEBODY ELSE."

SOT: (:17)

SAYS: "FIFTY YEARS OF RIGOROUS ECONOMIC STUDIES HAVE SHOWN ... THESE RENT REGULATIONS ARE NOT THE ANSWER."
