A bad decision at any point in life can lead to an arrest or even a conviction. Of course, a record that includes any felony or even a misdemeanor conviction can make finding employment or a home fairly difficult. State Senator Shirley Smith wants to change that. Her so-called Second Chance Bill is a legislative long shot, but it seems to be opening up the conversation about what to do about the more than 6,000 northeast Ohioans who get out of prison every year. You're invited to join the conversation Tuesday morning at nine.

Guests

State Senator Shirley Smith, Democrat, 21st Senate District
Jill Rizika, Executive Director, Towards Employment
State Senator Lance Mason, Democrat, 25th Senate District
