    Bill Summary

    This bill authorizes the owner of land subject to a regulatory taking to file a petition for a jury of inquest or sue for damages, under the laws governing eminent domain. This bill defines "regulatory taking" as the following effects when caused by city, county, or state regulations:

    (1) Deprivation of all economically beneficial use of the land;
    (2) Permanent physical invasion of the land; or
    (3) Diminishment of property values, including, but not limited to, interference with distinct investment-backed expectations.

    If a plaintiff prevails in an action brought under this bill, the plaintiff will be entitled to reasonable costs, disbursements, and expenses, including reasonable attorney, appraisal, and engineering fees, actually incurred because of such proceeding, in addition to any damages awarded.
