Sen. Joseph Griffo, R-Rome says he will consider supporting legislation requiring students to disclose their criminal history if SUNY does not reverse a recent decision that did away with that requirement. According to SUNY’s decision, students who already have been admitted will only be asked about felony convictions if they are seeking to live on campus or participate in certain internships, clinical, or study abroad programs.

Do you agree with SUNY’s decision?
