ACTION NARRATIVE 3:02:22 PM CHAIR MATT CLAMAN called the House Judiciary Standing Committee meeting to order at 3:02 p.m. Representatives Claman, Eastman, Kopp, LeDoux, and Kreiss-Tomkins were present at the call to order. Representative Stutes arrived as the meeting was in progress. SB 148-BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR POLICE/TRAINING 3:02:51 PM CHAIR CLAMAN announced that the only order of business would be SENATE BILL NO. 148, "An Act relating to powers of the Alaska Police Standards Council; and relating to background checks for admission to police training programs and certification as a police officer." 3:03:54 PM REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN referred to [Section 1, AS 12.62.400(a)(19)] page 2, lines 28-31, which read as follows: (19) admittance to a police training program under AS 18.65.230 or for certification as a police officer under AS 18.65.240 if that person's prospective employer does not have access to a criminal justice information system. REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN asked why this was not an issue previously, or if it was an issue, how was it handled. 3:04:43 PM BOB GRIFFITHS, Executive Director, Alaska Police Standards Council (APSC), Department of Public Safety, reiterated his testimony from the previous hearing and advised that prior to last year, the Alaska Police Standards Council (ASPC) was deemed a law enforcement agency. Under that authority, he said, the ASPC routinely ran fingerprints as a law enforcement agency, except, two years ago, unbeknownst to the ASPC, the FBI reclassified the Police Standards Councils as a licensing agency, thereby, losing its access to the fingerprint-based background checks. In order to gain back that authority, he advised that SB 148 adds it to the list for occupational licenses on pages 1-2 of SB 148. 3:05:58 PM REPRESENTATIVE KREISS-TOMKINS moved to report SB 148, labeled 30-GS2594\A out of committee with individual recommendations and the accompanying fiscal notes. There being no objection, SB 148 passed out of the House Judiciary Standing Committee. 3:07:03 PM ADJOURNMENT There being no further business before the committee, the House Judiciary Standing Committee meeting was adjourned at 3:07 p.m.
