Move continues to tighten State’s forfeiture laws

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Lawmakers could soon be voting on a combination of bills that would make the state’s forfeiture laws stricter.

Later today a bipartisan organization will testify in front of the Senate in support of the bills.

The 8-bill package under consideration would require law enforcement agencies to provide more evidence before seizing property used in connection with a crime.

One of the bills in particular focuses on vehicle forfeitures for offenders who purchase less than one ounce of marijuana.

The House passed the package in June before sending it on to the Senate for consideration.
