HB 5341 FATE (Fair Access to Employment Bill)

HB 5341 is the F.A.T.E. (Fair Access to Employment) bill sponsored by Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth and Sen. Don Harmon.

Currently, petitions to seal criminal records are being denied because of outstanding fees and fines that petitioners cannot afford to pay. HB 5341 clarifies that fines and fees cannot be considered when determining whether a person can seal their record.
