This week, Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack vetoed a measure that would have restricted government's ability to use eminent domain to boost economic development, saying the limits would interfere with economic development projects.
Several people came forward saying they would suffer serious economic harm if the restrictions aren't passed.
Brian Walker, of Essex, says he would lose 80 percent of his farming operation if a proposed lake is approved.
Vilsack has offered to negotiate with lawmakers and then summon them back into a special session to approve a compromise. However, republicans say they are only interested in a special session to override Vilsack's veto.
