Controversial High-Speed Rail Project: Cong. Brady & Ellzey File Bill to Protect American Landowners


The High-Speed Rail Land Acquisition Assurance Act will protect land that families have owned for generations – and depended on for their livelihoods.

Texas Insider Report WASHINGTON, D.C. – On January 10th, Congressmen Kevin Brady (TX-08) and Jake Ellzey (TX-06) introduced the High-Speed Rail Land Acquisition Assurance Act to protect the property rights of Americans. Brady and Ellzey are helping lead the charge in Congress against High-Speed Rail Projects and their use of eminent domain. 

This bill ensures that Texas Central’s high-speed rail and other high-speed rail projects cannot seize taxpayer land for projects that will never be started. The High-Speed Rail Land Acquisition Assurance Act as filed will require companies to acquire all the land needed to finish a high-speed rail project before construction can begin.

“Many questions remain about Texas Central’s plans to build and finance this controversial high-speed rail project, and I support any necessary reforms that will protect the rights of landowners whose farms, ranches, and homes sit along their proposed route,” said Congressman Brady.

“Our government was created to protect our liberties — not take them away — and I will continue to fight against anything that would grant this company the ability to seize rural landowners’ property without their consent.”

“This bill is about protecting private property rights, which is what Texas was built on,”
said Congressman Ellzey.

“I will never give in when it comes to opposing private interests using eminent domain to take someone’s property. Land cannot be taken, homes destroyed, and lives disrupted for a private company’s boondoggle. The High-Speed Rail Land Acquisition Assurance Act will protect land that families have owned for generations and depended on for their livelihoods.”

Filing the High-Speed Rail Land Acquisition Assurance Act is the first step in ensuring the protection of Americans property rights.
