STEPHEN S. DAVIS, Chief Clerk
To repeal section 43.530, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to fees for
criminal history requests.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 43.530, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu
thereof, to be known as section 43.530, to read as follows:
43.530. 1. For each request requiring the payment of a fee received by the central
repository, the requesting entity shall pay a fee of not more than [five] ten dollars per request for
criminal history record information not based on a fingerprint search and pay a fee of not more
than [fourteen] twenty dollars per request for criminal history record information based on a
fingerprint search. Each such request shall be limited to check and search on one individual.
Each request shall be accompanied by a check, warrant, voucher, money order, or electronic
payment payable to the state of Missouri-criminal record system or payment shall be made in a
manner approved by the highway patrol. The highway patrol may establish procedures for
receiving requests for criminal history record information for classification and search for
fingerprints, from courts and other entities, and for the payment of such requests. There is
hereby established by the treasurer of the state of Missouri a fund to be entitled as the "Criminal
Record System Fund". Notwithstanding the provisions of section 33.080, RSMo, to the contrary,
if the moneys collected and deposited into this fund are not totally expended annually for the
purposes set forth in sections 43.500 to 43.543, the unexpended moneys in such fund shall
remain in the fund and the balance shall be kept in the fund to accumulate from year to year.
2. For purposes of obtaining criminal records prior to issuance of a school bus operator's
permit pursuant to section 302.272, RSMo, and for determining eligibility for such permit, the
applicant for such permit shall submit two sets of fingerprints to the director of revenue when
applying for the permit. The fingerprints shall be collected in a manner approved by the
superintendent of the highway patrol. The school bus permit applicant shall pay the appropriate
fee described in this section and pay the appropriate fee determined by the Federal Bureau of
Investigation for the federal criminal history record when he or she applies for the school bus
permit. Collections for records described in this subsection shall be deposited in the criminal
record system fund.
