Office of the Revisor of Statutes

The governor's office may request a check of:
(1) systems accessible through the criminal justice data communications network, including,
but not limited to, criminal history, predatory offender registration, warrants, and driver's license
record information from the Department of Public Safety;
(2) the statewide supervision system maintained by the Department of Corrections; and
(3) national criminal history information maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation;
on candidates for positions within the governor's residence or appointment by the governor. The
candidate shall provide the governor's office with a written authorization to conduct the check
of these systems. For a check of the national criminal history information, the request must
also include a set of fingerprints which shall be sent to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
The bureau has the authority to exchange the fingerprints with the FBI to facilitate the national
background check. The superintendent may recover fees associated with the background checks
from the governor's office.
