Illinois Regulator Reduces Barriers for Applicants with Criminal Convictions

Implements suggestions made by Gov. Rauner & the Illinois Criminal Justice Reform Commission
Springfied--(ENEWSPF)--November 22, 2016. The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (“IDFPR”) is announcing that it has simplified forms for applicants with criminal convictions to encourage participation in the applicant review process and dispel assumptions that most individuals with a criminal conviction are automatically denied licensure. While less than 1% of applicants with a conviction are denied licensure, many do not complete the requisite review process because it is believed to be overly complex, burdensome and intimidating.  IDFPR’s initiative is part of ongoing efforts . . .
