LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- The Legislature sent Governor Gretchen Whitmer bills Thursday changing the state’s civil asset forfeiture laws.
Supporters say there should be a conviction before police can keep a person’s property. They say it’s a due process issue.
Republican Senator Peter Lucido is a bill sponsor. He’s been working on these changes since he was first a Representative in 2015.
“That was my number one bill I entered when I came up to this place. I saw the injustices done, I want to fix it, and I also said it’s time for making a change.”
