AN ACT AUTHORIZING THIRD-PARTY FINGERPRINTING SERVICES.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

There is no fiscal impact expected from the bill, which permits the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) to enter into a contract with a third party for fingerprinting services. There is a significant backlog within DESPP due to the volume of applications. The bill only permits the contractor to charge a convenience fee to applicants (in addition to the fee remitted to the state) for processing, leaving no cost to the agency.
