For some of us - our children are felons or have records. This will make it EVEN MORE difficult for them to get jobs in the future. Among the homeless people here in Columbia, SC most have records, addictions, mental disorders. Some are just down and out unlucky or like some of us 1 paycheck away from being there too. This is a bill that NEEDS SUPPORT if you have ANY want to change the homeless situation in your area - read it and forward your letter/email to your congressman. Please note that this will HELP those who made mistakes and have records of a non-violent nature get a clean slate and be able to secure a job. Talk to any homeless person here with a record and they will tell you the streets have taught them it's tough but breaking the law years ago has made it IMPOSSIBLE to get a job. This bill will help. And I think - COULD THIS maybe some day help Dude or your kids?
