This week, the state House passed HB 1035 unanimously, a bill that calls for Common Core standards to be repealed and replaced with standards designed by the state. The state Senate followed shortly thereafter, passing the bill by a vote of 27-1.

Iowa lawmakers should go big on civil asset forfeiture reform

William Davis and John Newmer­zhycky were traveling through Iowa in April 2013 on their way to Las Vegas from a World Series of Poker event in Illinois when they were pulled over by Iowa State Patrol in a drug interdiction stop. The state patrolman who pulled them over falsely claimed that Newmer­zhycky, who was driving, failed to turn on his turn signal when changing lanes.

The Insidious Tyranny of General Warrants

You’ve seen it a thousand times in movies, on police dramas, in any media dealing with crime and punishment. The police show up at a suspect’s house demanding entry, only to have the occupant retort, “Come back when you’ve got a warrant.”

Wyoming lawmakers may take another shot at offering some protections for innocent people's property

The Wyoming Legislature, in February, passed, with overwhelming, bipartisan support, a strong bill that would have offered strong protections for innocent people whose property has been wrongfully seized by the government through the state's absolutely awful civil asset forfeiture laws. The bill would have required the government to win a criminal conviction before it could seize property believed to be used in crime.

Mandatory Minimums: A 20th Century Solution to a 21st Century Problem (Part 2)

The federal government and many state governments have slowly been moving away from mandatory minimum sentence for nonviolent offenders. Many of these reforms have been tremendously helpful. But more reforms are necessary to keep big government out of the courtroom.
