CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to discuss a bill that releases the criminal records of current and prospective employees or volunteers working with the elderly or disabled in Nevada.

Current law permits employers to review the criminal records of current employees and future hires if their job description includes children. SB38 expands that allowance to include those working with people over the age of 59 or disabled individuals.

Employees or volunteers with criminal records available to their employer due to job description must still give consent before the records are released.

The Senate committee takes up the bill on Wednesday.
