Senator Smallwood, bill sponsor, presented House Bill 18-1411. Under current law, a background check is required for child care operators and employees and another background check is required if that agency will be working with vulnerable persons. The bill allows individuals or agencies who work with vulnerable persons and who also operate a licensed child care agency to undergo just one background check. Currently, when the Department of Public Safety is requested to conduct two background checks on one person, the department only charges for and conducts one background check.
There was no public testimony on the bill.
