Letters: Action, funding needed for expungement laws to work

Bank Image

State Sen. Royce Duplessis of New Orleans deserves great accolades for Senate Bill 111 which reforms our state’s arcane expungement process, a process that hampers and in many cases prevents those trying to clean up their legal issues from moving on to a productive life.

While the bill passed with unanimous support the big challenge is getting cooperation among all public entities involved in the complex system to create the needed database/system changes to facilitate the new law. Legislators still need to provide funding to effect the needed changes.

At a time when crime reduction is a top concern, we need to urge our legislators to push for quick implementation. Any one of us caught in the current system would be hard-pressed to move on.
