Wyoming's Senate Judiciary Committee has pre-filed remarkable legislation aimed at reforming the state's asset forfeiture practices.
If adopted, Wyoming would
(1) begin requiring convictions before property could be forfeited via state laws; and
(2) prohibit all Wyoming law enforcement from accepting federal forfeiture proceeds "conditioned upon the state law enforcement agency's adoption of federal law enforcement practices and procedure"---a current eligibility requirement for receipt of federal forfeiture funds via the federal equitable sharing agreement.
Wyoming's 2015 legislative session is scheduled to begin on the 13th of January 2015.
