Abstract:     
Much of the confusion in takings jurisprudence arises from the failure of the courts to develop a coherent federal constitutional property theory that adequately addresses the expectations of the private property owner. This article proposes replacing the traditional two-step takings analysis of first determining what constitutes a protectable property interest and then determining when governmental regulation affects that interest to an extent requiring compensation, with a one-step analysis that focuses on the regulatory impact on the functions that property serves.
