A bill that would allow some people to erase their court and police records has been sent to the governor, but it's unlikely she'll sign it.

Lawmakers passed the bill that would allow victims of identity theft, people wrongly arrested or people convicted of misdemeanors to expunge their records.

Supporters say having public records of wrongful arrests make it hard for people to get jobs.

The governor opposes the bill and vetoed a similar one last year.
