Memorandum


    This legislation, while being broadly intended, will not permit any individual boards and commissions the ability to access criminal records under P.L. 92-544. Once a board/commission enacts a legislative rule more narrowly defining specific authorization under FBI established criteria, access to the checks would be granted.
