Senate Roll Call 399 on
2015 House Bill 4499: Increase civil asset forfeiture burden of proof

To require a more rigorous “clear and convincing evidence” burden of proof standard in a law that gives government the power to take ownership of an owner’s property that has been deemed a "nuisance” due to being associated with criminal activity. Under current law property may be "forfeited" in this way under the least rigorous "preponderance of the evidence" standard. Other bills in the package (House Bills 4499 to 4507) make the same change to other criminal statutes and require more disclosures by agencies.
