Assembly Bill No. 2343
CHAPTER 256

An act to amend Sections 11105 and 11105.2 of the Penal Code, relating to criminal history information.

[ Approved by Governor  September 07, 2012. Filed with Secretary of State  September 07, 2012. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2343, Torres. Criminal history information.
(1) Existing law requires the Department of Justice to maintain state summary criminal history information, including the identification and criminal history of any person, such as his or her name, date of birth, physical description, fingerprints, photographs, dates of arrest, arresting agencies and booking numbers, charges, dispositions, and similar data about the person. Existing law requires the department to furnish this information in response to a request from certain authorized agencies, organizations, or individuals that need the information to fulfill employment, certification, or licensing duties, such as the employment of peace officers or the licensing of community care facilities.
This bill would clarify that certain of those provisions refer to state summary criminal history information that is initially furnished to those authorized agencies, organizations, or individuals, for those purposes. The bill would also require that, when state or federal summary criminal history information is furnished pursuant to those provisions, the authorized agency, organization, or individual shall furnish a copy of the information to the person to whom the information relates if the information is a basis for an adverse employment, licensing, or certification decision.
(2) Existing law authorizes the department to provide subsequent arrest notification to the entities described above upon the arrest of any person whose fingerprints are maintained on file at the department as the result of an application for licensing, employment, certification, or approval. Existing law requires the notification to consist of a current copy of the person’s state summary criminal history transcript.
This bill would expand the scope of the information that may be provided to include subsequent state and federal arrest or disposition notification to any entity authorized to receive the information under state or federal statutory law, upon the arrest or other disposition of any person whose fingerprints are maintained on file at the department or the Federal Bureau of Investigation as the result of an application for licensing, employment, certification, or approval, except as specified. The bill would require, when the department supplies the subsequent arrest or disposition notification to a receiving entity, the entity to expeditiously furnish a copy of the information to the person to whom it relates if the information is a basis for an adverse employment, licensing, or certification decision. The bill would also include related findings and declarations.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
