Illinois has altered a 2011 law that barred all convicted felons from having or obtaining a professional license in the state, says the Washington Post in an August 26 article. Rather than a blanket ban on all felons, licensing boards for many professions will now consider individuals on a case-by-case basis. Sex offenders were not affected by the new changes.
