Victory in Iowa for opponents of a liquid carbon dioxide pipeline

Federal Court Upholds Louisiana Law Prohibiting Government-Mandated Project Labor Agreements - The Truth About PLAs


Those fighting a planned liquid carbon dioxide pipeline in Iowa were recently winners in a court where a judge ruled a state law giving surveyors the right to enter private property is unconstitutional.

The judge denied a pipeline company’s request for an injunction to allow survey crews access to one farmer’s land near Sioux Rapids. District Judge John Sandy said a law giving crews that access violated the state constitution because it doesn’t provide just compensation for damages to landowners in exchange for the loss of their right to deny entry to their land, according to the Sioux City Journal.
