Notice of Proposed Rule
DAR File No.: 37379
Filed: 02/28/2013 04:49:36 PM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The rule is being updated to implement a change in the fee made during the 2011 Legislative Session, S.B. 2.
Summary of the rule or change:
The rule is being changed to show the increase in the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) fee from $15 to $20. This change took place in the 2011 Legislative Session, S.B. 2. Making this change in the rule has been overlooked until now.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Subsection 31A-3-103(3)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
The change in the above captioned rule will have no effect on the department's or state's budgets. The money collected for background checks goes to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Local government will not be affected since they have no input in the department's licensing procedures.
Small businesses who pay for the licensing fee of their employees will be affected by the $5 increase of the BCI fee. As of 05/01/2011, when the bill went into effect, 2,143 individuals were licensed and fingerprinted. In 2012, the FBI fingerprinting charge decreased by $2.25, offsetting the overall impact of BCI's increase. This affected 2,877 individuals who were licensed that year.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
Individuals were charged an additional $5 to be fingerprinted. In 2011 when the bill went into effect, 2,143 individuals were licensed and fingerprinted. In 2012, the FBI fingerprinting charge decreased by $2.25, offsetting the overall impart of BCI's increase. This affected 2,877 individuals who were licensed that year.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Each Utah resident that applies for an insurance license is fingerprinted and a background check is done by both the BCI and the FBI. Between BCI's $5 increase and the FBI's $2.25 decrease the fingerprinting fee has increased $2.75 overall. The applicant pays for the services of both the FBI and the BCI and that money goes directly to them. These fees do not go to the department or the general fund.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The fee change for fingerprinting of in-state producers will have no fiscal impact on the department or the state. All moneys for this process go directly to the BCI and FBI for the background checks they provide. The individual, or agency that pays for the individual's licensure, is now impacted by the overall increase of $2.75.
