Background checks, temp caregivers
HEALTH – Amends existing law to clarify requirements for criminal history and background checks for potential temporary caregivers.

RS30488 / S1154

This legislation provides clarification to authorize the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare to submit the fingerprints of temporary caregivers to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to process a criminal history and background check as per Idaho Code § 56-1004A, Criminal History and Background Checks. The statutory update is needed in order to add this category of caregivers as an approved group per FBI requirements.
