The Alaska House of Representatives Sunday passed legislation that may make it easier for certain Alaskans to get jobs.

Earlier this year, Rep. Harriet Drummond (D-Anchorage) introduced House Bill 316, which aimed to restrict public access to records related to simple marijuana possession convictions.

The bill was introduced after voters approved the legalization of marijuana in Alaska in November of 2014. That initiative allowed the sale and consumption of recreational marijuana but did not address how to deal with those with prior marijuana possession convictions.
