Sanchez Plans to Reintroduce Bill to Expunge Criminal Records.

Democrat Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez isn't giving up. Earlier today, Sanchez told us next January, during the short session he'll reintroduce legislation that would expunge some criminal records.

On Saturday, Governor Bill Richardson vetoed the measure at the urging of the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce.

In this audio he explains it's important to allow people who have been wrongly arrested to have their records erased after a period of time.

Employers argued they need to know the backgrounds of their employees and prospective hires.
