2013 House Bill 5081: Require law enforcement property seizure reports
  1. Introduced by Rep. Tom McMillin (R) on October 16, 2013, to require law enforcement agencies to file detailed reports on their criminal asset seizures (which in many cases involve individuals charged with a crime but not convicted). The reports would have to include details about the alleged crime and pre-seizure investigations, whether the person was convicted, descriptions of the seized or forfeited assets, whether the property was returned if the person was not convicted, the disposition of the property including any fees charged to the owner, how the agency used money from the sale of the assets and more.
    • Referred to the House Criminal Justice Committee on October 16, 2013.
