FILE -- In this Jan. 26, 2004, file photo, Rep. John McCoy, D-Tulalip, listens to testimony in Olympia, Wash. Washington tribes and the country’s largest American Indian organization say when a state agency recently stopped running criminal background checks for emergency child placement situations, they put children at risk. The groups are urging officials to reinstate the background check process or let tribes have access to the national database for these emergency situations. McCoy, a state Democrat who represents the Tulalip district, said the dispute is yet another problem tribes are having with access to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
