Bill Number: 
HCS HB 694
Bill Purpose: 
Modifies provisions to fingerprint-based criminal records checks
Date of Vote:

My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HCS HB 694, introduced by Representative Sonya Anderson (Republican - District 131) modifies provisions related to the criminal history and fingerprint background check database.  These changes are minor, and required in order to maintain compliance with Federal requirements.  Nothing in the bill seemed objectionable on its face, so I voted "yes".  The bill also had an emergency clause, as otherwise we would miss the deadline to comply with the Federal mandate.  I voted "yes" on the emergency clause as well.
