Utah Initiative B was on the November 7, 2000 ballot in Utah. It passed, with 497,719 votes in favor and 224,630 votes against.

The measure was largely funded by out-of-state donors, including the liberal billionaires George Soros (New York), Peter Lewis (Indiana), and John Sperling (Arizona). Together, they outspent opponents of the measure by $560,000.00 to $15,000.

Initiative B:

  • Restricts government's ability to confiscate property taken from ‘innocent owners' in drug arrests and other crimes.
  • Establishes uniform procedures for the forfeiture of property.
  • Prohibits use of any asset forfeitures by law enforcement.
  • Mandates all asset forfeitures be given to the Utah Uniform School Fund.
