Senate Bill 22-099,
Dear CSLC Members & Friends,
You’re invited to join us this Monday for our next program. We’ll gather online on Monday, March 7 at noon to discuss Senate Bill 22-099, known as Clean Slate, a bill to automatically seal eligible non-violent criminal records in Colorado. Over 1.3 million Coloradans having a record eligible for sealing, but only 5% on average successfully get their record sealed. Come learn about how this bipartisan bill could impact people with records and their personal information, and hear from the legislative sponsors directly.
