Details of Proposed Bill: SB 969

AN ACT CONCERNING FEES CHARGED FOR CRIMINAL HISTORY RECORDS CHECKS.

(2) For a state agency requesting (A) a state criminal history records check of a person to be employed by such agency, no fee, (B) a state criminal history records check of a person not to be employed by such agency, the fee charged by the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection for performing such check, and (C) a national criminal history records check of a person, the fee charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for performing such check. The state agency shall reimburse the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection for [such cost] the fee paid by the department pursuant to subparagraph (C) of this subdivision. Unless otherwise provided by the provision of the general statutes requiring the criminal history records check, the state agency may charge the person a fee equal to the amount paid by the state agency under this subdivision.

This adds (codifies) the $50 state background check fee that the DESPP has long been charging to pistol permit applicants illegally.
