Finding a job may be getting a little easier in Kansas City, Mo., for some people convicted of crimes.
Some of them will no longer have to wait four years to get a “liquor card.”
In Kansas City, all people involved in the sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants, bars and retail stores have to be licensed by the city.
People convicted of violent crimes are not eligible. And until now, those with nonviolent felony convictions, including drunk driving, had a four-year wait after they had served any time involved.
