HB 1192 (2020)
Limit federal criminal asset forfeiture
Limits the ability of a state, county, or municipal law enforcement agency to transfer personal property to a federal agency for federal criminal asset forfeiture proceedings. The bill also requires a person to be charged or convicted of an underlying criminal offense before asset forfeiture proceedings cannot go forward. The House amended the bill to also prohibit transfer of assets for forfeiture to the federal government unless it involves $100,000 or more in cash.
