‘Ban the box’ bill would prohibit Colorado employers from asking about criminal history
“You can still run a background check at any time on an applicant,” Rep. Leslie Herod (D-Denver) said."
“We want to allow someone to walk into a interview with their shoulders back and say here’s who I am here’s something that happened in my past it doesn’t dictate my future,” Herod said."
"Unlike previous years several business groups have shifted their support from opposed to neutral - including the NFIB."
"Still - many conservatives remain opposed."
