CAP’s Neera Tanden, Gov. Tom Wolf (D-PA), and Co-Founder of the Players Coalition Malcolm Jenkins on Enactment of Pennsylvania’s Bipartisan Clean Slate Legislation
Pennsylvania has become the first state in the nation to pass clean slate legislation, offering thousands of people who have paid their debt to society a real second chance. The legislation will provide for automatic sealing of certain criminal records for individuals who remain crime-free for a set period of time. Hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians will now get the second chance they’ve earned.
