Default These criminal justice reforms are now the law in Florida October 2019

These criminal justice reforms are now the law in Florida

Reforms to Florida’s criminal justice system went into effect this week which lawmakers passed during 2019 session of the Florida Legislature.Among the new laws:

– The threshold at which theft becomes a felony is now at $750, raised from $300.
– Reforms driver license suspensions and revocations.*
– Licensing boards for barbers, cosmetologists, and contractors no longer can reject applicants due to a nonviolent offense that took place more than five years ago.

To see more reforms and read entire article, see link below:

Its a start, though I wish they'd do something about the amendment that was tacked on to Amendment 4....which amounts to nothing short of a poll tax on felons Thank You Florida Republicans

It's a good start. Hopefully Florida can keep moving forward and improving.

No comment on contractors, but this is a great thing for barbers and cosmetologists. I know many people learn trades (such as these) while locked up so this will make it much easier for people to get back on their feet.
