Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    The purpose of this bill is to revise the process for eligibility for expungement of criminal records of persons convicted of nonviolent felonies; provides exclusions to eligibility; provides time periods for filing a petition for expungement; revises petition requirements and court procedure for evaluating preliminary and final orders of expungements; revises disclosure requirements for sealed record information; allows persons subject to an expungement to deny records existence; and provides for expiration of existing law reducing criminal status from felony to misdemeanor for certain crimes repealed in favor of these new expungement requirements.
    This legislation could have a fiscal impact on benefit issuance for clients of DHHR, but the impact is expected to be minimal.
