Subject: Cosponsor Memo - Issuing a Photo Card for Volunteers Who Have Passed a Background Check
Dear Colleagues –

I recently spoke with a constituent who suggested the state issue a photo id-style card to those who have passed a background check for volunteering. This would make compliance for individuals who volunteer with multiple organizations much easier.

With this in mind, I will be introducing legislation that would permit, but not require, DHS to issue a volunteer card with a photograph to an individual who has received the necessary background clearances. An individual could elect to simply receive a paper clearance as is standard practice, or for a nominal additional fee could receive the photo card.

Your support of this initiative would be welcome.

Introduced as HB87
