DFS Legislative Package: Fingerprinting Requirements


CS/CS/CS/HB 1073

Fingerprinting Requirements

pp. 31–32, 60–61; §626.202, §648.34

Provides that an individual who is currently licensed under Chapter 626 or 648, F.S., and has submitted fingerprints in the past 48 months is not required to resubmit fingerprints or pay the fingerprint processing fee when applying for an additional license.

Current law requires a submission of fingerprints and a fingerprint-processing fee of $50 with each application for an insurance license and each application for licensure as a bail bonds agent. The DFS currently tracks its licensees against the Florida Clerk’s database to identify existing licensees convicted of or pleading to felony charges. According to the DFS, the fingerprinting requirement is unnecessary for those already licensed because the DFS can already obtain relevant information on these individuals from the Florida Clerk’s database.
