AUGUSTA — After minimal discussion, the Maine Senate has killed a bill that sought to address compensation for landowners in cases of seizures of their properties for roads or other public facilities.

The Senate vote to kill the so-called “takings” bill came today, soon after the Legislature met to conclude the 2012 session.

The bill had been heavily debated before lawmakers recessed in mid-April. The Judiciary Committee worked up a compromise that would have set forth a process for landowners to recoup losses in property values of at least 50 percent due to a state regulation.

But before the vote today, lawmakers said the bill needs more work next session.
