In response to a troubling bill that was introduced in California, S.B. 393, CDIA sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that is hearing the bill.  The bill would make it more difficult for employers, non-profits, and landlords in the state to conduct criminal background checks on employees, volunteers, and renters. The unnecessary difficulty in criminal background checks under the bill could make for less safe workplaces and apartment buildings, and more dangerous places for volunteers and communities in need.
