What a waste of tax payer money to background check NYS employees they have already hired some having been on the job for years. Are these licenses that secure you need a background check like having a Military Secret Clearance to issue them.. too crazy just forget about them and keep what yah got. bad enough Uncle Sam got involved and screwing american citizens in tough times having to but 100 dollar passports just to travel the carribbean

I think it is a good idea to do these back ground checks and fingerprints on the employees, should have been done in the first place. If it was asked on the application many years ago when some were hired then why would they have been hired if the record contained a felony conviction? Makes no sense to me, so either the question was asked and not checked into before the process of being hired. Or it wasn't asked at all on the application. So why then would it now be fair for a person or persons to be let go from the postion that they currently hold just because of the states error or errors in the past application process? I understand that we have to intrust ppl with important jobs and we want the best for that job, but it is to late to punish someone from the past after they have held the position, and especially in these hard times, ppl can not afford to be out of wk, hell we can't afford to be working either. Just sounds like this new policy has the potential to be a huge mess. We have the holgram on our DL's now, and they don't cost 85 dollars, i think the last time i went it was about 50 dollars or so, and is good for several years at a time.
