Law enforcement civil administrative forfeiture bill has conservatives on both sides
from Y'all Politics
Civil administrative forfeiture law had been on the books since the 1980s. It allowed law enforcement agencies to seize property with a value of up to $20,000 in the event that there was a violation of the Uniformed Controlled Substance Act. In 2018, HB 1034, which would have extended the repealer on the policy died in committee. This year HB 1104 is attempting to bring the process back from the grave but it's receiving criticism.
