Ohio Gov Signs Bill To Curb Ex-Inmate Hardships
Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed 13 bills, including one to ease ex-inmates back into the workforce as cosmetologists, salvage-yard dealers and construction workers.
The measure aims to reduce employment or professional hardships brought about by a person’s conviction or decision to plead guilty to a crime. Ex-offenders could get a state certificate of employment or professional licensure lifting certain bars on employment.
Kasich signed the bills in private on Tuesday. One bill would bar people from altering a vehicle to create or add a hidden compartment.
Another measure would require scrap metal dealers to take a photograph of anyone who sells them scrap. A separate bill also renames the Department of Development as the Development Services Agency.
