2015 House Bill 4629: Repeal “bond” requirement to contest civil asset forfeiture

Passed 29 to 8 in the Senate on December 14, 2016.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To repeal a requirement that a property owner whose property has been seized by police and is subject to “civil forfeiture” must provide a cash bond in order to contest the taking, and if the challenge is unsuccessful, must pay all the expenses of the proceedings. Under civil forfeiture laws, police can seize and keep any property that may be associated with a crime and keep the property - or the proceeds from its sale - even if the owner is never convicted or even charged with a crime.
