2017 House Bill 4158

House Roll Call 277: Passed

To establish that property seized from a person because it may be associated with a suspected drug crime is not subject to forfeiture unless an individual is actually convicted. However, the conviction requirement would only apply to forfeitures of less than $50,000 (meaning police and prosecutors could still take and keep those assets using a lower burden of proof).
