HB 456: Terrorism

H.B. 456, P.N. 1074 (GOOD). This would amend Title 42 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure).
This would create the crime of terrorism. It would be a crime of terrorism to violently intimidate or coerce a civilian population, influence government policy by intimidation or coercion, or affect government conduct. Such a violent misdemeanor or felony would be increased by one degree of offense. A first degree felony of terrorism would be punishable by 40 years or less of imprisonment and a fine of $100,000 or less.
A person engaged in planning or perpetrating terrorism could have foreign and domestic assets, connected to this terrorism, forfeited.
Property could be seized if there is probable cause to believe it is dangerous to health and safety, if it is believed it has been or is intended to be used for terrorism, or upon issuance of a search warrant or administrative inspection warrant that results in an arrest.
Forfeited property would be transferred to custody of the Attorney General or a District Attorney. It may be retained for official use or sold, with proceeds retained by the appropriate prosecuting offices.
