AN ACT CONCERNING THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH'S RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING VARIOUS REVISIONS TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH STATUTES.


Section 511 of the amendment adds the requirement that applicants for employment in Department of Developmental Services (DDS) programs providing direct care to DDS consumers submit to a national criminal background check. The agency anticipates paying the $15 fee associated with this provision for each applicant, resulting in a cost of approximately $3,000 annually.
