LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Lawmakers in Lansing are considering a bill that would ban employers from asking applicants about their criminal history, at least at first.

The legislation would remove the question asking about previous felony convictions from all job applications.

Supporters say it unfairly puts ex-offenders at a disadvantage when they're trying to turn their life around.

Employers would still be able to do criminal background checks to find convictions, but supporters say this would allow applicants to explain those convictions in person during an interview rather than being turned away immediately.

A similar bill introduced last year did not make it through the legislature.

Dozens of Michigan cities, including Kalamazoo, already have similar measures in place.
