CT: New CT Laws: Weapons, Underwater Farms And The ‘Clean Slate’ Bill

Source: patch.com 6/13/21

CONNECTICUT —The state’s General Assembly 2021 Regular Session adjourned June 9, but promised to convene a special session before the end of the month to tackle the legal marijuana bill.

Will it pass? That’s still a coin-toss, but a number of bills have made their way out of the House and Senate and onto Gov. Ned Lamont’s desk, where they were signed into law in the past few weeks.

Senate Bill 1019, the so-called “clean slate bill” is arguably the most life-changing of the latest batch of new legislation. The sweeping reform bill wipes out the records of criminal convictions after 7-10 years, including some felonies

The provisions do not apply to class A, B, or C felonies, some unclassified felonies, family violence crimes, or certain crimes requiring sex offender registration.

The provisions do not apply to class A, B, or C felonies, some unclassified felonies, family violence crimes, or certain crimes requiring sex offender registration.”

I don’t think this surprises anyone.

Everytime I hear about California passing new “clean slate” Senate Bills for ex-convicts I don’t even bother anymore
After 21years of being on the registry I already know certain crimes that require sex offender registration the provisions do not apply.
Sex offenders don’t qualify for any kind of federal assistance ether I’m still surprised Janice Bellucci was able helped that guy qualify for Section 8 that was low-key a really big deal.
I wonder if she could help people apply for FHA loans because their qualifications are kinda the same.

Good luck 🤔

You can get an FHA loan. There are no registry provisions. I was a registrant when I was approved for an FHA on my house purchase in California.

Not sure where you heard that you can’t get an FHA because it’s not true.

You’re correct. I also bought my place with an FHA + CALHFA loans after I lost my apartment due to being on the list about a year into probation. Loan programs in general don’t seem to care about people’s records.

Didn’t know that 🤔

Of course, it doesnt apply to “certain” registered citizians

According to people Connecticut is the state that loves freshness. To me it’s a state likes the taste of crap and doesn’t live up to its nickname.

Once again, they bake a cake in front of us and everyone gets a piece, but not us – we’re forced to watch them eat it. .

I wouldn’t trust them baking a cake, probably give you the runs or you’ll be stiff as a board in few days.
