10. District Attorney

Action to introduce, on first reading, an ordinance amending Carson City Municipal Code Title 4 Licenses and Business Regulations, adding Chapter 4.03 National Background Checks, Section 4.03.010 National Fingerprint-Background Check for Business License Applicants to require certain applicants to submit to a National Fingerprint-Background Check with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other matters properly related thereto.

Staff Summary: The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has informed Carson City that, after August 29, 2008, the FBI will no longer accept fingerprint cards submitted for national, criminal-background checks for business license applicants unless there is an underlying local ordinance authorizing the practice. Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 239B.010 (1) (a) authorizes political subdivisions of the state to request of and receive from the FBI information on the background and personal history of persons seeking licenses. However, the FBI requires a more specific authorization that allows the fingerprint-background-check practice at the ordinance level. In particular, the FBI requires that such an ordinance express: (1) the specific business, profession, or occupation to which an application for a license applies, for which applicants must be fingerprinted; (2) specific authorization for the submission of the fingerprints for a national, criminal-background check; and (3) a reference to the authorizing state statute, NRS 239B.010 (1) (a). The proposed ordinance fulfills the requirements set forth by the FBI, so that Carson City may continue to submit fingerprint cards to the FBI for a national, criminal-background check of certain business-license applicants. In particular, the business license applicants affected by the ordinance are: (1) applicants seeking an alcoholic beverage license; (2) applicants seeking a pawnbroker's license, pawnshop license, second-hand dealer's license, or an antique dealer's license; and (3) applicants seeking a solicitor's license.
