Cohen Seglias Partner Christopher Carusone was quoted in the Central Penn Business Journal article, “Government Pa. House Panel OKs So-Called ‘Clean-Slate’ Bill.”
The Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee voted unanimously Tuesday to approve legislation intended to help people convicted of minor offenses shield their records from employers.
The move means that the legislation, which has had bipartisan support, now goes back to the House and Senate for review before it can go to the desk of Gov. Tom Wolf.
State Rep. Ron Marsico (R-Dauphin County), the committee’s chairman, said he thinks the bill could be ready for the governor this spring.
