HB59 Records Expungement Bill in Judy Cmte on Wednesday

HB59 The records expungement bill.

This bill is sponsored by Rep. Chris England and would allow people who have been arrested but never convicted of a crime to have their records expunged. Currently the records are kept on file forever and can prevent someone from getting a job or living in public housing or traveling. If you have ever been arrested and charged with a crime but not convicted then the arrest is still on your record and under current law there is no way to get it off. This bill would remedy that.

This bill will be in committee on Wednesday, March 4, 2009 and I need all of my readers to call and email the members of the judiciary committee and ask them to pass this bill.

Just got back from the Judiciary Committee... HB59 received a favorable report and was voted out of the committee.

Hopefully it will come up for a floor vote soon.

Thanks for the report Andrew. I had plans to be down there this morning but my daughter is home from school with strep throat. Glad this passed.

Thanks Loretta,

This bill is long overdue, there is no reason to punish the innocent that have been cleared of any wrong doing. Please keep us posted.

Thanks,

John
