Section 18-1A-2 - Scope of chapter.
(a) This chapter provides standards for the acquisition of property by condemnors, the conduct of condemnation actions, and the determination of just compensation. It does not confer the power of eminent domain, and does not prescribe or restrict the purposes for which or the persons by whom that power may be exercised.
(b) This chapter supplements the law of this state relating to the acquisition of property and to the exercise of the power of eminent domain. In the event of conflict between this chapter and any other law with respect to any subject governed by this chapter, this chapter prevails.(Acts 1985, No. 85-548, p. 802, §102.)
