Long-awaited ‘clean slate’ bill moves to Gov. Wolf
The Pennsylvania state Senate unanimously passed the Clean Slate Act, and the bill is now headed to the desk of Gov. Tom Wolf. The Clean Slate Act, also known as H.B. 1419, automatically seals the criminal records for minor, nonviolent offenders, removing a large, expensive administrative burden and opening the doors to opportunity for thousands of Pennsylvanians who have paid their debt to society. Once Gov. Wolf signs the bill into law, Pennsylvania will become the first state pass clean slate legislation.
