Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (Feb. 19, 2013) —Legislation authored by State Sen. Travis Holdman (R-Markle) to protect Hoosier children passed the Senate today by a unanimous vote.

Senate Bill 114 would require child care provider applicants, employees and volunteers to submit to national criminal history background checks. Currently, only child care licensure applicants are required to undergo these background checks.

“Every parent wants their children to be safe while they are away,” Holdman said. “A national criminal history background check is the most comprehensive way to ensure our child care providers are hiring suitable employees.”

The legislation now moves to the House of Representatives for further consideration. Reps. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City), Rebecca Kubacki (R-Syracuse) and Vanessa Summers (D-Indianapolis) are its sponsors.
