I have heard of this practice in other industries. I know there are doctors who won't take a new patient until the check a database of people who have filed malpractice claims. I've never heard of any law that bars this practice.
In real estate, other than the normal race, sex, religion, ethnicity, and (in NYC only) sexual orientation protections, a landlord has complete discretion in choosing among prospective tenents. I didn't know of an RSA database before your post, but it does make sense. Do you know for a fact that it exists, or are you assuming? If it does exist, I know of no law that would prevent a landlord from not renting an apartment because that tenant is on that type of database
