Ventura County Star Reporter Timm Herdt has a great new blog post discussing the Governor's request for the legislature to limit how many bills they propose.
I was interested in what proposals our legislators have made so I followed the link in Timm Herdt's article.
I am interested in this bill by State Assembly Member Das Williams:
LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST
AB 389, as introduced, Williams. Private schools: employees.
Existing law requires every person, firm, association, partnership, or corporation offering or conducting private school instruction on the elementary or high school level to require each applicant for employment in a position requiring contact with minor pupils who does not possess a valid California state teaching credential, or is not currently licensed by another state agency that requires a criminal record summary, to submit 2 sets of fingerprints to the Department of Justice for the purpose of obtaining a criminal record summary from the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
This bill would delete the exemption for applicants possessing a valid California state teaching credential or who are currently licensed by another state agency that requires a criminal record summary, from submitting 2 sets of fingerprints for the purpose of obtaining a criminal record summary from the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Das Williams, what prompted you to look into the fingerprinting requirement of private school teachers? Who brought this to your attention?
Readers: Go through the links on his blog post. Tell me what other bills you find interesting.
