The Maryland Land Acquisition in Anne Arundel County Amendment, also known as Question 1, was on the November 8, 1988 ballot in Maryland as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have allowed Anne Arundel County to take land for public use before a jury's determination of compensation for the property. The measure would have required that the owner be paid based on a property value determined by an appraiser, but that additional payment would be paid of a jury so awards.[1]
