Memo of Support: Clean Slate Act A.6399 (Cruz)/S.1553C (Myrie)

All New Yorkers deserve equal access to housing, employment, and education. However, there are 2.3M New Yorkers who are perpetually punished by their conviction records that deprive them of access to these basic opportunities despite having already served their sentences. This legislation will ensure that all New Yorkers have access to basic opportunities by automatically clearing a New Yorker’s conviction record once they become eligible.
