SB17-189

SB17-189 - Consumer Options In Fingerprint Background Checks

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning elimination of the requirement that a law enforcement agency is the only entity authorized to take fingerprints for purposes of a background check.

Under current law, there are a number of professions that require fingerprint-based background checks. Some of those fingerprint requirements direct that the fingerprints must be taken by a law enforcement agency. The bill removes the requirement that a law enforcement agency is the only authorized entity able to take the fingerprints. If an approved third party takes the person's fingerprints, the fingerprints may be electronically captured using Colorado bureau of investigation-approved or federal bureau of investigation-approved livescan equipment. The third party shall not keep the applicant information for more than thirty days unless requested to do so by the applicant.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
