Following the unanimous passage of civil asset forfeiture reform legislation, HB 347, in the Ohio Senate, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“It’s a great day for private property rights in my home state. Once the House concurs with the Senate’s version of the bill, Ohio will join the growing list of states that have passed civil asset forfeiture reform to protect private property from government overreach and strengthen due process protections. This is a particularly sweet victory for FreedomWorks. Our community in the Buckeye State drove nearly 60,000 messages to state senators urging them to pass HB 347, showing substantial grassroots support for this crucial effort.”
