Fiscal Detail and Notes
Removing the requirements regarding the inquiry and consideration of criminal history information of job applicants from school administrative units, municipalities and counties eliminates the unfunded state mandate. The requirements still apply to state government.
This amendment also reduces by $263,568, from $398,952 to $135,384, the one-time appropriation in fiscal year 2018-19 to the Department of Administrative and Financial Services for the information technology and related costs of implementing the bill's requirements regarding the criminal history information of job applicants. This reduction reflects a revised estimate of the cost of implementing those requirements.
