State Issues

View the interactive map showing bills that NAPBS is tracking.

NAPBS’ government relations programs are designed to:

  • Advocate for the screening profession.
  • Represent the interests and concerns of screeners and those in the screening profession.
  • Facilitate broad member participation.
  • Provide a strong unified voice for screening through legislative and regulatory representation.

NAPBS’ government relations team tracks screening-related legislation in all 50 states. The involvement of members is vital to the success of our grassroots efforts in all states. We encourage all NAPBS members to use the information provided on the Legislative Action Center to take an active role in addressing the issues facing screening. We also encourage participation in NAPBS Advocacy Day.

Download the 2018 Advocacy Toolkit containing material to assist NAPBS members in developing strategies to educate legislators on topical issues affecting screening.

Bills introduced in state legislatures each session are reviewed, including but not limited to public record access, data security, Ban the Box, available identifiers, and expungement. The committee meets on a monthly basis to review current legislation and regulatory activity with the membership.

If you have encountered difficulty accessing complete public record information, please report the issue to GR.access@napbs.com.
