First-Of-Its-Kind ‘Clean Slate’ Bill Signed Into Law in Pennsylvania
Gov. Tom Wolf has now signed the Clean Slate Act, which passed both chambers of the Pennsylvania Legislature with overwhelming bipartisan support. The Clean Slate Act provides a major step forward for hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians with criminal records who have paid their debt to society. This law will not only help individuals with records and their families, but will also strengthen the economy, reduce recidivism, boost public safety, and save taxpayer dollars.
