The National Property Rights Alliance and others assert that Municipal ETJ’s including the Hot Springs ETJ are Unconstitutional. It may feel “un-American” for City officials to control real estate matters infringing on the property rights of citizens outside municipal limits who cannot vote in city elections and are not entitled to city services … and that it surely must therefore be “Unconstitutional”.
Can definite and specific explanations be made with direct reference to the relevant parts of the Constitution? Or else arguments referencing other founding documents that inform understanding the Constitution? What argument could a lawyer make to a judge or a jury in court for ETJ Unconstitutionality?
I hereby invite my readers to take a stab at that question using the “Leave a reply” feature below.
