Schumer proposed national background checks after child porn bust

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. - Senator Chuck Schumer is proposing a new way for organizations to do background checks on adults who are applying to work with children.

The new legislation is in response to a recent child pornography bust in the New York City area.

Authorities said they arrested 71 people, including a boy scout leader, a little league coach and religious education teachers in the bust.

Schumer is proposing a national system, where groups could get FBI fingerprint checks and crime information from other states.
