Law enforcement leaders 'disgusted' by bill's defeat- Las Cruces Sun News

Regional law enforcement officials were disgusted by the defeat of a bill aimed to adjust asset forfeitures resulting from criminal investigations. The bill passed the New Mexico State Senate but was not brought to the floor of House of Representatives before the legislative session ended last week.

Senate Bill 202 was meant to reform the state’s Asset Forfeiture Act, which requires funds and property seized in drug and other investigations to be given to the state treasury as opposed to the law enforcement agencies handling the case. - - 3/27/17
