This week the New Hampshire House of Representatives heard testimony on HB 636, a bill to limit civil forfeiture.

Under civil forfeiture laws, police are allowed to seize property that may be connected to a crime, whether or not the property owner is convicted of the crime.  Law enforcement gets a cut of any profits from the property.
