HJ 578

Virginia Fourth Amendment adds needed clarity to “reasonable search and seizure”

Today we present another in our series of "modern Federalist Papers" supporting Virginia's "Fourth Amendment for the 21st Century." Unlike police, many officials and employees in our vast state and local administrative agencies often have little or no proper training in law or law enforcement, yet have law enforcement authority that results in mistaken or even abusive applications inconsistent with the laws they are charged with enforcing.

Why It’s Time for a 21st Century Fourth Amendment in Virginia

Virginia Delegate Rich Anderson of Prince William County is a real patriot. Anderson has introduced HJ 578, an amendment to Virginia’s Constitution to prohibit unreasonable searches and seizures.
