parent and child_2We applaud the House and the Senate for taking the final steps on HB 40 to allow record expungement for certain low-level felonies. The bill is now headed to the Governor’s desk for his signature. We thank Representative Owens for sponsoring the bill and Representative David Floyd for being a primary co-sponsor. We also appreciate the work of Senate President Robert Stivers and Senator Whitney Westerfield for working to find a compromise that could pass the Senate this session. This legislation impacts children as it helps many parents with a criminal history get back to work after they have completed court-ordered requirements.

Please thank your legislators for passing this important piece of legislation to help adults who’ve gotten back on track get back to work and provide for their families. Find out who your legislators are here, and how they voted on HB 40 here.
