State Senate Moving To Help Hire Felons

State Senate will now take-up a bill that’s supposed to help convicted felons get jobs. A Senate committee has ok’d the law, which would stop employers from asking about felony convictions on the initial application form. Though, if the company does a background check, the information would still be revealed. But the idea is that if a felon is not eliminated right out of the gate — he may have a better shot at an interview and a job.
