Florida Senate Passes Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Unanimously

Reform Bills Headed to House for Floor Votes
New York, NY --(ENEWSPF)--March 4, 2016.  Today, the Florida Senate voted unanimously to approve SB 1044, which reforms the state’s “Contraband Forfeiture Act”. Introduced by Sen. Jeff Brandes, the bill now heads to Florida House of Representatives for a floor vote. The House companion, HB 889, passed its final committee of reference last week. The two bills are identical as amended and if HB 889 passes, civil asset forfeiture reform will head to Gov. Scott to be signed into law.

Civil asset forfeiture reform is a core national policy priority . . .
