I wholeheartedly agree!! My son has been waiting for this law to pass for 7 years now. The only way he can secure housing and not be rejected is by having a roommate secure the lease or having me as his mother secure an apartment for him. This is disgraceful…all because of criminal background checks. His restitution and probation was satisfied within one year of sentencing.

I have one simple question…..WHEN WILL THIS LAW GO INTO EFFECT IN NEW YORK STATE? PLEASE MAKE IT BE THIS YEAR….!
