Fiscal Note Summary


Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.


    The proposed legislation explicitly authorizes the Secretary to obtain fingerprint exemplars as part of permit applications from owners, managers, and other key personnel associated with the operation of solid waste facilities, and to submit those fingerprints in connection with requests for state and federal criminal background checks. The bill would lend an official imprimatur to what has been standard practice until recently, when the FBI notified the DEP that it would no longer process background checks absent explicit statutory authorization. The nominal cost of conducting the checks has been and will continue to be covered by the permit fee accompanying each application, so the proposed legislation will have no effect on either costs or revenues.
