Protecting Virginians’ Property Rights
Since then, Rob has helped lead the effort in Virginia to protect property rights. In 2007, along with then-Senator Ken Cuccinelli, Rob wrote Virginia’s law to require that any taking of property be for actual public use, and that the government not be allowed to take any more property than necessary. In 2012, Rob patroned the Resolution to place these property rights protections into the Virginia Constitution. The measure passed and in the 2012 election, Virginians voted in favor of the Property Rights Amendment with over 74% of the vote.
