Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform
In 2014, civil forfeiture reform legislation was proposed in the house:
H.R. 5212 (113th): Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2014 initially by Tim Walberg and then resubmitted as H.R. 5502 (113th): FAIR Act by Scott Garrett.
In the senate:
S. 2644 (113th): Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration (FAIR) Act by Rand Paul.
These bills died in the 2014 Congress.
Attorney General Holder also weighed in : Prohibition on Certain Federal Adoptions of Seizures by State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies. This is a change in policy on the federal level, but it doesn't stop abuses on the state level. The House Judiciary subcommittee agreed that reform legislation is necessary.
