The state Legislature returned last week to open its 100th session.
The state House kicked off by making civil asset forfeiture the subject of its first bills introduced – that’s usually a signal the legislation is a top priority.

The chamber is also considering legislation to lower the age of people allowed to sell or serve alcohol.
