You may soon have to give your DNA to the state and pay $250 for the privilege

• https://www.azcentral.com, Bree Burkitt

And if the proposed legislation passes, many people — from parent school volunteers and teachers to real estate agents and foster parents — will have no choice but to give up their DNA. 

Under Senate Bill 1475, which Rep. David Livingston, R-Peoria, introduced, DNA must be collected from anyone who has to be fingerprinted by the state for a job, to volunteer in certain positions or for a myriad of other reasons.

The bill would even authorize the medical examiner's office in each county to take DNA from any bodies that come into their possession. 

The Department of Public Safety would maintain the collected DNA alongside the person's name, Social Security number, date of birth and last known address.
