Two ways to address overcriminalization:

Property rights are one of our most basic rights. Taking property should require a high burden of proof. That’s why we need to reform Georgia’s civil asset forfeiture law.

“I am here today to thank the Georgia Public Policy Foundation for your role in building a fiscally conservative, pro-growth state. Not only did you help pave the way for a new generation of leadership, you continue to provide key policy advice and to hold us accountable to the principles we ran on. In short, you have had a transforming influence on this state. We are healthier, stronger, and better managed because of your efforts.
