Position NAIOP Lobbyists: 1.The federal government should not use federal programs or funding as a means to impose limitations on the use of eminent domain by state and local governments. 2.Each state should exercise its sovereign authority to determine the appropriate use of eminent domain. 3.The NAIOP chapters in each state are best positioned to determine their policy on the proper use of eminent domain in their state. One hundred and two pieces of legislation related to eminent domain were or are currently being considered by state legislatures.

"Development or impact fees are presumed valid as exercises by legislative bodies of the power to regulate land use." "Generally, ordinances that impose development fees are enacted pursuant to a municipality's police powers — to promote the safety, health and general welfare of its residents" "And as to a city's power to enact regulations necessary to promote the general welfare of its people, the concept of what is in the interest of the public welfare is given a broad range."
