SB 1003 - This act specifies that the Board of Private Investigator Examiners may deny a request for a license to an applicant who has received a suspended imposition of sentence following a plea of guilty to a misdemeanor offense. The board shall consider evidence of the applicant's rehabilitation when considering whether to grant a license to the applicant.
The act adds an exemption from private investigator licensing for certified public accountants and employees of the certified public accountant and of the accounting firm who assist in investigatory activities.
The act also repeals a doubly-enacted section which limited the private investigator licensing exemption for employees of a not-for-profit organization, or its affiliate or subsidiary, to employees who make and process requests on behalf of health care providers and facilities for employee criminal background information. The section that remains exempts employees of a not-for-profit organization, or its affiliate or subsidiary, whose investigatory activities are limited to making and processing requests for criminal history records and other background information from state, federal, or local databases.
This act is similar to HB 1779 (2010).
