Mississippi lawmakers have rejected plans to allow police to resume seizing cash, guns and vehicles without going before a judge, agreeing with civil liberties advocates that the practice was unjust.

That means it dies at a Tuesday deadline for legislation to advance out of committee. The Brandon Republican, who’s running for attorney general, said House leaders decided not to move forward with the proposal.
