SB47 -- Free Criminal Background Checks for Religious Organizations

OPPOSE: The taxpayers should not carry the financial burden for staffing decisions made by not-for-profit and religious organizations. SB47, authored by Sen. Hershman and passed out of the Senate 48-1, provides exactly that. It provides for free background checks on potential employees and volunteers. If background checks are prohibitively expensive, maybe we should revisit their costs for all interested parties.

Status: Passed Senate 48-1; passed out of House Committee 11-0; up for full House.
