Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation increases the burden of proof for law enforcement to initiate a civil forfeiture proceeding against an individual charged with a crime.  The burden of proof is currently a preponderance of the evidence, this bill would increase that burden to "clear and convincing evidence" which is a tougher standard.
