Activists Make Another Push For "Clean Slate" Act in New York State

Activists are making another push in the state capitol for passage of a law sealing criminal records and making it easier for past offenders to get jobs and housing.

They will be holding a rally this morning (at 11) in Albany.

Under the so-called Clean Slate Act, conviction records would be sealed after three years for misdemeanors and seven years for felonies once an offender has successfully completed their sentence.

The bill has the support of labor groups and the Business Council of New York State.
