Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Provides that a certificate of good conduct may be granted to relieve an eligible offender of any employment, occupational licensing, or housing bar (rather than just an employment bar).
House Committee Amendment No. 2 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill. Provides that a certificate of good conduct does not limit any employer, landlord, judicial proceeding, administrative, licensing, or other body, board, or authority from accessing criminal background information; nor does it hide, alter, or expunge the record. Provides that the existence of a certificate of good conduct does not preclude a landlord or an administrative, licensing, or other body, board, or authority from retaining full discretion to grant or deny the application for housing or licensure.
