Provides that a person will only be subject to forfeit proceeds and property the person derived directly from the commission of the crime, proceeds and property directly traceable to proceeds and property derived directly from the commission of the crime, and instrumentalities the person used in the commission of the crime only if the person is convicted of violating a State law subject to forfeiture.
