The Michigan Senate has voted to give school districts 15 business days before releasing the names of workers with criminal records.

As passed by the House, the bill would have given schools 14 days to verify that school employees had committed the crimes listed.

But the Senate changed it to allow school officials more time, essentially extending the time for review from two weeks to three.

Lawmakers also changed the bill to require that only the names of teachers who have committed felonies and sex-related misdemeanors would be available to the public, not the names of those who have committed other misdemeanors.
