CoLA – 2015 PRIORITY Legislation …HB1287 .. “No Civil Asset Forfeiture without conviction”

Note: This notice is from the Virginia Tea Party Patriot Federation.

CoLA – 2015

A “Heads Up”

Please contact your Delegates and Senators and ask them to co-sponsor HB1287.

In addition to the privacy issues discussed at the September VA Tea Party Patriots Federation Summit, we are working with Ken Cuccinelli and the ACLU on legislation to prevent civil asset forfeiture without a criminal conviction. Delegate Mark Cole has submitted HB1287 for the 2015 session. Law Enforcement abuse of asset seizure law has finally gained national attention and we thank Delegate Cole for legislation that will protect citizens of the Commonwealth from this ‘revenue enhancing’ egregious abuse of power.
