Fort Carson Expansion Sparks Eminent Domain Debate

· Apr. 5, 2010, 3:59 pm

The Pentagon wants to expand Fort Carson's Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site in southeastern Colorado. A bill introduced in the state legislature would block the Army's use of eminent domain to acquire the necessary land. Ryan Warner talks to the bill's author, Rep. Wes McKinley, a Democrat from Walsh, and Brian Binn, president of Military Affairs for the Greater Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce. He opposes the bill. We also hear from rancher and landowner Mack Louden.
