1:46:59 to 1:47:20( Edit History Discussion )

who work with vulnerable populations be fingerprinted. we'dike them to go through the f.b.i. check process. we would like to know there's not a reason for us to be suspect they are with our children, our parents, or with a vulnerable person who is disabled. the good exception clause is

Richard Burr

1:47:10 to 1:47:30( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: suspect they are with our children, our parents, or with a vulnerable person who is disabled. the good exception clause is there and very broadly written and i might it says "shall accept in a

1:47:21 to 1:47:41( Edit History Discussion )

there and very broadly written and i might it says "shall accept in a approved for good cause by a corporation." "shall" not "will" go fingerprint process. good cause exemption. "are for good cause."

Richard Burr

1:47:31 to 1:47:51( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: approved for good cause by a corporation." "shall" not "will" go fingerprint process. good cause exemption. "are for good cause." very loosely defin. that could be the size of the corporation, no access to f.b.i. fingerprint check. it could be the size of the

1:47:42 to 1:48:02( Edit History Discussion )

very loosely defin. that could be the size of the corporation, no access to f.b.i. fingerprint check. it could be the size of the entity with not the financial capabilities to go through it. now i added something overnight to this bill.

Richard Burr

1:47:52 to 1:48:12( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: entity with not the financial capabilities to go through it. now i added something overnight to this bill. didn't want to do it but i added drug testing which is very applicable thing. i say to my good friend the manager on the majority side,

1:48:03 to 1:48:25( Edit History Discussion )

didn't want to do it but i added drug testing which is very applicable thing. i say to my good friend the manager on the majority side, this is not in stone for me. it wasn't in my original amendment but i think it my frustration that i when through last night ??able to work out something that

Richard Burr

1:48:13 to 1:48:34( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: this is not in stone for me. it wasn't in my original amendment but i think it my frustration that i when through last night ??able to work out something that made unbelievably commonsense to me. i would think this would be a threshhold we would set and i would prefer to do it in a bipartisan waiver success just

1:48:26 to 1:48:47( Edit History Discussion )

made unbelievably commonsense to me. i would think this would be a threshhold we would set and i would prefer to do it in a bipartisan waiver success just to have a vote because i know today the vote would be on a motion to table, i would lose this initiative would not be in place and though my children aren old enough, my father is.

Richard Burr

1:48:35 to 1:48:56( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: to have a vote because i know today the vote would be on a motion to table, i would lose this initiative would not be in place and though my children aren old enough, my father is. and if, in fact, there was any volunteer that came in to the facility he lives in and works with him, i would like to have

1:48:48 to 1:49:09( Edit History Discussion )

and if, in fact, there was any volunteer that came in to the facility he lives in and works with him, i would like to have the comfort of knowing that at least somebody said let's make sure that the individuals, in fact, don't have criminal backgrounds; that they've gone into this through the truly volunteer reason versus some

Richard Burr

1:48:57 to 1:49:21( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: the comfort of knowing that at least somebody said let's make sure that the individuals, in fact, don't have criminal backgrounds; that they've gone into this through the truly volunteer reason versus some aspect of criminal. now, my chief reason for wanting this is kids and the elderly and the

1:49:10 to 1:49:31( Edit History Discussion )

aspect of criminal. now, my chief reason for wanting this is kids and the elderly and the disabled -- no more than that. we know that a vast majority of folks who work in these programs do it because they believe in it.

Richard Burr

1:49:22 to 1:49:42( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: disabled -- no more than that. we know that a vast majority of folks who work in these programs do it because they believe in it. they want to have an effect, a positive effects, on somebody's life and that's what they've chosen to do. i think it's important for us to

1:49:32 to 1:49:52( Edit History Discussion )

they want to have an effect, a positive effects, on somebody's life and that's what they've chosen to do. i think it's important for us to realize that it doesn't matter whether it's americorps for title one schools or child care

Richard Burr

1:49:43 to 1:50:04( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: realize that it doesn't matter whether it's americorps for title one schools or child care centers, or an entity that accepts cdbg subsidies -- when parents lebanese their their children in the hands of

1:49:53 to 1:50:14( Edit History Discussion )

centers, or an entity that accepts cdbg subsidies -- when parents lebanese their their children in the hands of someone to look after the kids they want to know the volunteers that are there meet the threshhold, the standard, that they would expect. we wouldn't have an involvement

Richard Burr

1:50:05 to 1:50:26( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: someone to look after the kids they want to know the volunteers that are there meet the threshhold, the standard, that they would expect. we wouldn't have an involvement except federal government funding. and i think the american people expect us to uphold what their expectations are and that's that

1:50:15 to 1:50:35( Edit History Discussion )

except federal government funding. and i think the american people expect us to uphold what their expectations are and that's that people that shouldn't be there aren't there. so madam president, i say to may

Richard Burr

1:50:27 to 1:50:49( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: people that shouldn't be there aren't there. so madam president, i say to may colleagues on both sides, it's my hope we can come to an agreement. it's my he this can be whittled down to f.b.i. checks only. it's my hope that we will both

1:50:36 to 1:51:00( Edit History Discussion )

colleagues on both sides, it's my hope we can come to an agreement. it's my he this can be whittled down to f.b.i. checks only. it's my hope that we will both understand the the clause "for the exception,"

Richard Burr

1:50:50 to 1:51:10( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: understand the the clause "for the exception," and the word "will." and it's my hope we can pass the bigger bill with an which reaccept bells what i have offered so we can look at every american family and say we've

1:51:01 to 1:51:21( Edit History Discussion )

and the word "will." and it's my hope we can pass the bigger bill with an which reaccept bells what i have offered so we can look at every american family and say we've looked at those that are the most vulnerable and to the best of our ability we've tried to make sure that somebody that shouldn't be there isn't there.

Richard Burr

1:51:11 to 1:51:31( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: looked at those that are the most vulnerable and to the best of our ability we've tried to make sure that somebody that shouldn't be there isn't there. now, as every american even the f.b.i. fingerprint check is there's no way for us to look at the

1:51:22 to 1:51:42( Edit History Discussion )

now, as every american even the f.b.i. fingerprint check is there's no way for us to look at the can ever happen. but madam president i'd suggest today that the standard that america holds should do something, not

Richard Burr

1:51:32 to 1:51:54( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: can ever happen. but madam president i'd suggest today that the standard that america holds should do something, not nothing. that we should attempt not just rollover and play dead. if, in fact, we come to tabling

1:51:43 to 1:52:04( Edit History Discussion )

nothing. that we should attempt not just rollover and play dead. if, in fact, we come to tabling of this, we're going to rollover an weement going to take it. i don't think this requirement

Richard Burr

1:51:55 to 1:52:16( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: of this, we're going to rollover an weement going to take it. i don't think this requirement chases anybody away except the individuals that shouldn't be in the program to start with. that might not pass the threshhold. that might be found to be in one

1:52:05 to 1:52:25( Edit History Discussion )

chases anybody away except the individuals that shouldn't be in the program to start with. that might not pass the threshhold. that might be found to be in one of those certainly wouldn't want them to participate in this program. so at this time i would yield

Richard Burr

1:52:17 to 1:52:22( Edit History Discussion )

Richard Burr: of those certainly wouldn't want them to participate in this program.
