The wording of the proposed Restitution Law, approved by the Bavarian State Government on 7 January 2014, can be seen here. The draft law will go before the Bundesrat, the upper house of Parliament that represents Germany's 16 states, on 14 February. The legislation would remove the statute of limitations in looted art cases if the current holder can be shown to have acted in bad faith.
