So as reported in the Herald-Leader, HB40, the version of the expungement bill I talked about last week has passed in the House. The vote is promising, as were the comments from our legislators. My very unscientific scan of social media for the articles about this bill show that the public overwhelmingly supports Class D expungement. This bill will make its way to the Senate in the next few weeks, but there is also a Senate Bill that has been filed that would also allow for felony expungement. I plan on looking at the difference in that bill (SB77) and HB40 and will make some predictions about what the final bill ends up looking like.
