Default H.R.2348 - Clean Slate Act of 2019

Granted it was just introduced a couple weeks ago
But fingers crossed it eventually becomes law

I am glad to see some positive steps but why does every bill that deals with reform exclude someone convicted of a SO? The very 1st thing listed listed says hasn't committed a sex offense. People of all convictions should have the right to reestablish themselves if they prove they have taken steps to rehabilitate. People can forgive a murderer or someone who burns down someone's house but the "oh God no" factor of a sex offense is the kiss of death.

Well this one also includes violent offenders I believe so I think it's main focus is to stop penalizing people for minor drug charges that only involve marijuana post incarceration. Violent Offenders still often are excluded in these bills like Sex Offenders. I think part of the reason for that is that they fear including everyone will lead to a negative outcome so they go for the easiest route. Because the stigma around marijuana is starting to life significantly this bill would be easier to pass today than it would even 5 years ago. Baby steps as they say...

But I agree with you everyone deserves to have a second chance and we as a society should be trying our damndest is see that actual rehabilitation and progress are top priorities for ur offenders.
