Activists are making another push in New York for passage of a law that would seal criminal records and make it easier for those convicted of crimes to get jobs and housing.
The Clean Slate Act would seal conviction records after three years for misdemeanors and seven years for felonies.
This wouldn’t come until the person convicted has completed their sentence.
The bill has support of labor groups and the Business Council of New York State.
