Gov. Polis signs bill requiring name-based background checks
Gov. Jared Polis on Friday signed into law a bill requiring certain people to submit to a name-based criminal background check as a condition of employment, appointment, registration, licensure or certification.
Current law requires certain people, including applicants for certain licenses, employment, or volunteer activities, to undergo a fingerprint-based criminal history record check. The bill adds the requirement that the person submit to a name-based criminal history record check when the fingerprint-based check reveals a record of arrest, but does not show a disposition in the case.
The bill was sponsored by Reps. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont, and Colin Larson, R-Littleton, and Sen. Rachel Zenzinger, D-Arvada. The bill unanimously passed both the Colorado House and Senate.
