A BILL to amend and reenact article 2, chapter 15 of the code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding a new section, designated section 24a, all relating to ratifying the federal National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact.

The Legislature of West Virginia approves and ratifies the

National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact, 42 U.S.C. § 14616, as it existed on January 1, 2004, and the compact shall remain in effect until legislation renouncing the compact. The Superintendent of the West Virginia State Police shall execute, administer, and implement the compact on behalf of the state, and may adopt necessary rules, regulations, and procedures for the national exchange of criminal history records for non-criminal records purposes. Ratification of the compact does not affect the obligations and responsibilities of the state police criminal records section regarding the dissemination of criminal history records within West Virginia.
