Thanks for posting that. I really wish people would wake up and care about this. It could effect anyone and its totally wrong.

Yes, H.B. 2810 has been on my radar. I have used the Request to Speak platform to let my legislators know how I wish them to vote on it.

Has there been any news except Coronahysteria?

The answer is yes, which makes your comment extremely puzzling.

Grrr. Me mad too. You mad? So, it looks like H.B. 2810 must have died somewhere, we need to make sure it is reintroduced next year(s) for sure until it gets passed.

What is scary is from your link on reason that with the almost certain budget problems all states are going to face, asset forfeiture becomes more popular with state governments. This Arizona vote is a perfect example. But I don't believe allowing the police to steal from people "legally" is the way shore up budget deficits.

Both civil asset forfeiture and outrageous fines for traffic offenses have the same goal: More money for cronies.
