Prevents the government from stealing your stuff without trial or due process. Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform is desparately needed here in North Dakota. Did you know the government can sell off your assets that were seized if you were suspected of a crime - even if you weren not found guilty or even charged? According to a study recently published by the Institute for Justice, civil asset forfeiture now outpaces criminal forfeiture. That same study indicated North Dakota is one of only two states in the nation with an 'F' rating for forfeiture law. This will change that. Government doesn't exist to enrich itself at the expense of the taxpayer, especially without due process of law.
