SB1036 amends Arizona Revised Statutes Section 13-905, concerning the restoration of civil rights for individuals with criminal convictions. The bill specifies that individuals who have been convicted of a felony are only eligible to receive one "certificate of second chance" upon the set aside of their conviction. This certificate helps to alleviate barriers to obtaining occupational licenses and provides certain protections to employers and housing providers.

The bill further clarifies that a person is ineligible for another certificate if they have previously received one for a felony conviction, including multiple felony convictions that result from the same act or course of conduct. The bill also makes technical and conforming changes to the existing law.
