Why Not Run Background Checks on Officials?

Whenever I hear someone involved with our youth complain about background checks, I have to wonder why. Anyone that works around children should be thoroughly checked before getting access. Volunteers, coaches, and even officials. There is now a bill moving in the Tennessee state legislature that would not only require TSSAA officials to be screened but also force the officials to pay the cost of the check. I like this idea. Not only will they be required to be screened but it also eliminates the excuse of schools’ budget constraints.

I am seeing this more and more in my business too. Landlords will send their potential tenants to me and the tenants are required to pay me for the cost of their own background check. As one landlord recently told me, if they aren’t serious enough to pay for it, then I’m not interested in having them as a tenant.
