House Bill 578 provides young adults with an opportunity to achieve successful futures
(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Michael Curcio (R-Dickson) has officially passed his first bill in the Tennessee House of Representatives.
House Bill 578 lowers the age requirement for a juvenile to have his or her criminal record expunged following a petition from age 18 to age 17. This legislation provides young adults with an opportunity for a fresh start before their 18th birthday; it now awaits passage in the Senate.
“My first year in the 110th General Assembly has been an incredibly rewarding experience,” said Representative Curcio. “I am proud to serve the people of District 69 and grateful for the opportunity to work with my fellow House Republicans in order to pass laws that benefit all Tennesseans.”
Representative Curcio is sponsoring 10 additional bills this legislative session. Earlier this year, Speaker Beth Harwell selected him to serve as Vice-Chairman of the House Criminal Justice Committee for the 110th Tennessee General Assembly, which is an honor that is rarely bestowed upon freshman representatives.
