S-1589/A-3872 is currently under consideration by our legislature. If passed, the bill would revise occupational licensing laws that bar formerly-incarcerated individuals from seeking employment.
New Jersey’s licensing laws are currently the 16th most burdensome in the nation. They prevent many former offenders from finding meaningful work, giving back to their communities and supporting their families.
S-1589/A-3872 is the key to making our communities stronger and our streets safer. Send a letter to your state legislator today and urge them to support this bill.
