>>New Laws Give Ex-Cons Second Chance
(Chicago, IL) -- It's not always easy for ex-cons to find work, but a new law in Illinois could change that. Businesses that hire former inmates could be eligible for a 15-hundred dollar tax credit. The law is designed to help the former criminals adjust to life outside prison walls, and cut back on the number of people who commit crime again. Another new law clears convictions for some non-violent criminals that complete a two-year stint on probation.
