Protecting Your Property Rights with Betsy Sanz
Show Notes

This week we cover slow-moving infrastructure projects, the impact of the conservative boycott of Bud Light, good and bad news on nuclear power, and return-to-the-office discipline from corporate managers. Our interview this week is with Betsy Sanz, an attorney with the Institute for Justice (IJ). We talk about the current attempt by a Georgia rail company to use eminent domain to compel the sale of private land, and how IJ and their clients are fighting back. We also cover the legacy of property rights jurisprudence in the case of Kelo v. New London (2005) and beyond.
