An "All or Nothing" Approach is Bad for Liberty

Have you ever been attacked as a "statist" because something you support to expand liberty - in a big or small way - doesn’t "go far enough?" Join the club - we’ve heard this kind of thing from a subset of libertarians for years. But their all-or-nothing approach not only rejects the strategy of leading founders like Thomas Jefferson and John Dickinson, it also runs counter to the ideas of Mr. Libertarian himself.

On Monday, an Arizona House Committee unanimously passed a bill that would reform the state’s asset forfeiture laws and prohibit the state from taking a person’s property without a criminal conviction in most cases. The proposed legislation would build on important reforms signed into law in 2017 that opted Arizona out of a federal forfeiture program. A coalition of 12 Republicans introduced House Bill 2810 (HB2810) on Feb. 8. The legislation would require a criminal conviction before the prosecutors could begin forfeiture proceedings in most cases. The bill also includes provisions that would increase protections for property owners involved in the forfeiture process, including requiring an arrest before property could be received and prompt return of property if no criminal case exists. Last week, the House Criminal Justice Reform Committee approved the bill with a vote of 9-0. On Monday, the House Rules Committee did the same, with a vote of 8-0. The Arizona House killed a similar reform bill last year. #assetforfeiture #libertarian #constitution #10thAmendment #arizona https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/02/arizona-committee-passes-bill-to-require-a-criminal-conviction-for-asset-forfeiture/
