S> I just read on the Compuserve Scouting Section that starting in the near
S> future, all adult leaders will be required to have their fingerprints taken
S> and have a background check done yearly.
Our DE announced at Roundtable that a new federal law, nicknamed the
Oprah bill for Oprah Winfrey, would require that all adults, including
volunteers, who work with youth would be required to undergo a
background investigation. Our SE is supposed to give us the details at
our November Roundtable. I have no objection to the fingerprinting or
background checks <I have it done every 5 years at work.>, but our DE
said Pennsylvania was proposing a charge of $40 for each volunteer.
S> I have print outs of the notes if anyone wants them E-Mailed to them.
