Bill: HB18-1020
Title: Civil Forfeiture Reforms
Custom Summary
Official Summary

During the 2017 session, the general assembly enacted a bill
involving civil forfeiture requiring seizing agencies to submit reports to

the department of local affairs (department). The bill requires reporting
agencies rather than seizing agencies to file the reports and defines
reporting agency. The bill also expands the scope of the reports to
include seizures related to a local public nuisance law or ordinance.
The 2017 act also prohibited seizing agencies from receiving
forfeiture proceeds from the federal government unless the aggregate
value of property seized in a case is over $50,000. The bill establishes the
law enforcement assistance grant program in the department of public
safety to reimburse seizing agencies for revenue lost because of this
prohibition.
The bill establishes the law enforcement community services grant
program (program) in the division of local government in the department
to provide grants to law enforcement agencies, local governments, and
community organizations to improve community services. It establishes
a committee to review grant applications and make recommendations on
grant awards and establishes a fund from which grants are paid.
Under current law, the net balance of proceeds received from a
forfeiture action are divided evenly between the governmental body of the
seizing agency and the managed service organization providing
behavioral health in the judicial district (MSO). The bill provides that the
50% that went to the MSO is now divided so that the MSO and the new
law enforcement community services grant program fund each receive
25%.

Title: No Monetary Conditions Of Bond For Misdemeanors
Custom Summary
Official Summary

The bill states that, except in certain cases, a court shall not require

a defendant arrested and charged for any misdemeanor, petty offense, or
municipal code violation to post monetary bail as a condition of being
discharged from custody. A defendant who is charged with an offense
other than a felony may not be released from custody under his or her
own recognizance until he or she signs and files with the clerk of the
court or other designated person a written release agreement that includes
certain promises.
Current law requires any pretrial services program to be
established pursuant to a plan formulated by a community advisory board
created for such purpose and appointed by the chief judge of the judicial
district. The bill makes this requirement merely permissible.
The bill states that if a person is in custody and the court imposed
a monetary condition of bond for release, and the person, after 5 days
from the setting of the monetary condition of bond, remains in custody
because he or she is unable to meet the monetary obligations of the bond,
upon motion of the person, the court shall forthwith conduct a hearing to
reconsider the monetary condition of the bond.

Title: Digital Trunked Radio System Coverage Gaps
Custom Summary
Official Summary

Joint Budget Committee. The statewide digital trunked radio
system (DTRS) provides interoperable radio communications that allow
personnel from multiple agencies in different levels of government to
rapidly share information and coordinate efforts in emergency situations.
While DTRS is considered one of the nation's most successful statewide

public safety communications voice networks, there are areas of the state
that do not have adequate coverage on the DTRS network. This means
public safety officials are unable to communicate with others when
working in geographies with little to no coverage.
The general assembly established the public safety
communications trust fund (trust fund) for the acquisition and
maintenance of public safety communications systems, including the
DTRS. Currently, through the 2024-25 fiscal year, the general assembly
appropriates $7.2 million each fiscal year from the general fund and other
funds to the trust fund for purposes of the DTRS. The governor's office
of information technology (office) is required to use the money for the
replacement of legacy radio equipment and hardware at radio tower sites
and for software upgrade assurance. Due to a one-time savings achieved
through negotiations between the office and its DTRS software vendor,
approximately $3 million of the money appropriated to the trust fund to
date is unexpended.
The bill authorizes the office to use any unencumbered and
unexpended money appropriated for purposes of the DTRS on DTRS site
supporting infrastructure and DTRS supporting software and hardware.
In addition, in both the 2018-19 and 2019-20 fiscal years, the bill
requires the general assembly to appropriate an additional $2 million from
the general fund to the trust fund. The bill requires the office to use the
money to work in partnership with local and regional government entities
to add additional radio tower sites in areas of the state that are
experiencing critical coverage gaps for public safety radio
communications. The office is required to submit a report to the joint
budget committee detailing the use of the additional $2 million.

Title: Department Of Corrections Disclose Location Of Out-of-state Inmate
Custom Summary
Official Summary

The bill states that if the department of corrections (department)
relocates an inmate for incarceration or contracts with another state for
the incarceration of an inmate in a penal institution in another state, then
not later than 48 hours after such relocation, the department shall notify
the prosecuting attorney and any registered victim of crimes for which the

inmate is serving his or her sentence of the name and location of the penal
institution where the inmate is to be housed.
This disclosure requirement does not apply if:
  • The inmate is a witness and the executive director of the
department (executive director) determines that disclosing
the inmate's location would pose a risk to the personal
safety of the inmate, corrections staff, other inmates, or
facilities;
  • The prosecuting attorney requests in writing that the
department not disclose the location of the penal institution
where the inmate is located;
  • The registered victim is currently incarcerated; or
  • The inmate has been employed by the department or as a
law enforcement officer and the executive director
determines that disclosing the inmate's location poses a risk
to the personal safety of the inmate, corrections staff, other
inmates, or facilities.
If the department relocates an inmate and the executive director
determines that any of these factors applies, then not later than 48 hours
after such relocation, the department shall notify the prosecuting attorney:
  • That the inmate has been relocated; and
  • Which of the factors the executive director has determined
applies.
If the prosecuting attorney agrees with the executive director's
determination that a factor applies, then the prosecuting attorney shall
confirm the executive director's determination in writing, the department
shall retain such written confirmation, and the department shall notify any
registered victim of one or more crimes for which the inmate is serving
his or her sentence that:
  • The inmate has been relocated; and
  • The department is unable to disclose the inmate's location
because one of the factors applies.
If the prosecuting attorney disagrees with the executive director's
determination that a factor applies, then the department shall disclose the

The bill permits a municipality or county to adopt a local
ordinance or resolution regulating the operation of bicycles approaching
