Michigan weighs new asset forfeiture transparency bill

Happy to report that Michigan's House of Representatives has introduced bipartisan sponsored legislation to comprehensively track the circumstances surrounding forfeiture actions; how cases are disposed of; and how forfeited assets are ultimately spent. Ideally, of course, Michigan would simply end the practice of civil forfeiture. This bill, however, could prove an invaluable tool by giving journalists, reformers, voters, and legislators the tools to make the case for reform.
