Amends GS 120-32 to authorize the Legislative Services Commission to obtain a criminal history record check of any current or prospective employee, volunteer, or contractor who is under the Legislative Services Officers' (LSO) supervision and control. The record check is to be conducted by the State Bureau of Investigation as provided in new GS 143B-972. Provides that the criminal history report is not a public record.

Enacts new GS 143B-972 to allow the Department of Public Safety (DPS) to provide the LSO with the criminal history from the State and National Repositories of Criminal Histories the criminal history of any current or prospective employee, volunteer, or contractor of the Legislative Services Commission. Requires the LSO to provide the individual's fingerprints, consent form, and other required identifying information. Requires the LSO to keep all such information confidential. Allows DPS to charge a fee to offset costs of conducting the check.
