PRIV DET LIC-EXEMPT-JOURNALIST                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Private Detective, Private  Alarm,  Private  Security,      
   and  Locksmith  Act of 1993 to exempt from the requirements of the Act      
   journalists and persons who obtain information, with reference to  the      
   truth  or  falsity  of  a  statement,  from  public records. Effective      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Limits the application of journalist exemption in underlying bill      
   to a person who does not otherwise represent himself or herself  as  a      
   private detective.                                                          
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinon of DCCA, HB72 fails to meet the definition of a        
          State mandate under the State Mandates Act.                          
          FISCAL NOTE, AMENDED (Dept. of Professional Reg.)                    
          HB 72, as amended, will have no measurable fiscal impact.            
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, AMENDED                                  
          No change from previous mandates note.                               
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (DCCA)                                           
          HB 72, with H-am 1, does not have a fiscal impact.
