    TransCanada is a foreign national company. In order for them to claim eminent domain the state department must issue permits to the state level.

    Texas is Texas, you know. The second you think you got it figured out, it will switch on you. Just ask Rick Perry in 2012.

    •  I don't think this is entirely accurate. (0+ / 0-)

      I think that the State Department can only deny a permit under certain conditions.  That's very different than the suggestion that they approved a permit.

            oil companies, and pipelines, through the Railroad Commission?  It's an odd quirk in TX lawm I thought I read once, that any landowner really can't refuse a pipeline, though the taking (deed or easement) must of course be paid for.
