And they're off!

The race is on to gather 700,000 valid signatures to put a measure to reform eminent domain before California voters. California came breathtakingly close to approving a far-reaching measure that would have reached beyond overt land grabs and also shielded property owners from regulatory takings. While a nearly identical measure passed overwhelmingly in neighboring Arizona, the effort proved too ambitious for Californians. The new measure is more narrowly tailored to address abuses of eminent domain.
