Senate Roll Call 403 on
2015 House Bill 4505: Increase civil asset forfeiture burden of proof

Passed 38 to 0 in the Senate on October 7, 2015.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To require a more rigorous “clear and convincing” burden of proof standard in the law that gives police agencies the power to take ownership of property that has been seized because it may be connected with an illegal drug crime, even if the property owner is not charged or convicted. Under current law property may be taken 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.
