DES MOINES – Today, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed HF 650 into law, which protects job creators that hire individuals with past criminal offenses.

Reynolds. “I am proud that this legislation received the unanimous support of legislators. It also helps our state build a stronger workforce for the more than 35,000 open jobs across Iowa.”
