Tue, 24 Feb 2009 16:00:42 GMT —
State Representative Aaron Pea has called his latest bill the most important piece of legislation he will file this year.
The District 40 Representative unveiled the bill at the state capitol on Monday.
The bill would give the Attorney General's Office the power to seize assets and profits from people and organizations involved in serious criminal activity.
"I assume the weapons that will be seized under this proposed legislation will be resold for legitimate purposes or they will be dismantled," State Rep. Pea explained.
He says he hopes the bill will help Texas cut off the lucrative profits fueling illegal enterprises.
