Pennsylvania on the Cusp of Passing Forfeiture Reform

Current Pennsylvania law allows police to seize property without due process or conviction of a crime. Civil asset forfeiture legally incentivizes policing for profit by allowing the police to keep 100 percent of the proceeds from seizures. This practice creates a conflict of interest for the authorities who benefit monetarily from seizing property.

FreedomWorks, U.S. Justice Action Network Urge Ohio Senate to Take Action on Forfeiture Reform

FreedomWorks and the U.S. Justice Action Network today urged the Ohio Senate to take action on civil asset forfeiture reform legislation, HB 347. This bill would restore due process rights in forfeiture cases and protect the private property of innocent owners. Since June 13, FreedomWorks has driven more than 10,600 emails to Ohio Senate Democratic and Republican leadership urging them to quickly move HB 347 through the upper chamber.

House Democrats Have Hijacked Chamber to Curtail Due Process

FreedomWorks today responded to the so-called “sit-in” staged by Democrats on the floor of the House of Representatives. House Democrats are staging the protest until the lower chamber votes on legislation to curtail due process rights guaranteed by the Fifth and Fourteenth amendments.

Congress Should Defend Due Process, Not Tear It Down

FreedomWorks today strongly criticized a reported proposal to prohibit individuals suspected of, though not prosecuted for, ties to terrorism from legally purchasing a firearm. The watch list has flaws and has also been used wrongly to prevent innocent Americans from flying, including the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Fox News commentator Stephen Hayes. No constitutional right, including the right to bear arms, should be taken away on a hunch. Due process is required.

Supreme Court Decision Underscores Growing Concern Over Regulatory Overreach

Given the harassment and everyday burdens that federal bureaucrats subject small businesses and families to, it seems obvious that decisions could be challenged by the basic process of judicial review. This right, however, was apparently not entirely evident. The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled unanimously in favor of property owners in a decision that weakens the EPA’s authority under the Clean Water Act. The ruling in United States Army Corps of Engineers v. Hawkes Co., Inc gives landowners and businesses the right to go to court when federal regulators trample their rights to property and due process.

Due Process Act Will Protect Innocent People from Government Overreach

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced legislation Wednesday that would reform federal civil asset forfeiture laws, offering key protections to innocent people whose property is seized by the government. The Deterring Undue Enforcement by Protecting Rights of Citizens from Excessive Searches and Seizures Act (H.R. 5283), or Due Process Act, is the most significant, if not first, major reform of federal forfeiture laws since 2000, when Congress passed the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act.
