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.
