Today was a win!
I introduced Ban the Box legislation HB 2115 in the #ksleg in 2017 and there was a hearing on Feb. 6, 2017. Unfortunately, the Judiciary Chairman did not work the bill.
This is a collaborative effort of several legislators including myself, Sen. Faust-Goudeau, Sen. Haley, organizations ACLU of Kansas, Kansas African-American Affairs Commission (KAAAC), Kansas Black Leadership Council, activists Lazone Gray & Durrell Gilmore (Sunflower Community Action). It’s also an excellent economic opportunity for KS, & a great 2nd chance opportunity to help those with criminal records struggling to find employment.
