Bipartisan Pair Want to Take PA’s Clean Slate Law a Step Further
A bipartisan pair of state senators is circulating a bill to take Pennsylvania’s landmark Clean Slate law a step further. The law automatically seals records for non-convictions, summary offenses, and most nonviolent misdemeanors after 10 years with no further offenses.
But Beaver County Republican Camera Bartolotta notes, it doesn’t fully expunge them.
She says thinks for people who have been pardoned by the governor, that should happen automatically.
Senator Sharif Street, a Philadelphia Democrat, is co-sponsoring the measure with Bartolotta.
Along with wiping post-pardon records, it would totally expunge non-convictions.
