Congress Should Learn from States on Civil Asset Forfeiture

The Ohio Legislature recently joined the growing ranks of states to pass civil asset forfeiture reform. More than a year in the making, both chambers passed, by overwhelming margins, House Bill 347, which, in most instances, requires a criminal conviction for the state to permanently seize property from an individual.

Ohio has the potential to implement major reform that has the power to restore basic American rights back in the hands of its citizens.

Time for the Ohio Senate to Pass Forfeiture Reform

The bill has yet to pass the Ohio Senate.
